The People History is truly a site that makes history interesting.
Ferndale, WA (PRWEB) December 17, 2007
The People History, a Web site where memories and history join together, recently celebrated its second anniversary.
The People History provides facts and figures from every year and decade since 1920 and is a platform where visitors can share their own stories and memories from years past. The Web site uses modern technology and multimedia to bring the last 87 years to life. Cost of living, prices, events, popular culture, inventions and technology are just some of the topics covered on The People History.
"If a picture is worth a thousand words, than a modern history site providing 600 links to videos related to events and popular culture from the '20s, '30s, '40s through the '90s must be worth millions of words," says Steve Pearson of The People History. "The People History is truly a site that makes history interesting."
The latest additions to the site are the This Day in History page, with major news and events, and Interesting Tidbits, which compliments This Year in History by providing facts and information about what happened in a particular year.
The People History includes each year from 1920 to 2007 and additional sections on the history of certain subjects, including the History of Fashion and the History of Computers. Pages contain links to related videos, including commercials and news items from past eras.
According to The People History, history allows society to use just a few words to instantly recognize a decade. For example:
- 1920s - Flappers, Prohibition and The Roaring 20's.
- 1930s -- The Great Depression and mobsters
- 1940s -- Concentration camps, the nuclear bomb and the second World War
- 1950s -- Baby boomers and the Cold War
- 1960s -- Swinging Sixties and man landing on the moon
- 1970s -- Vietnam and the growth of Japanese imports
- 1980s -- The beginning of the Technology Revolution
- 1990s -- Yuppie Era and the growth of the Internet
Now, with two years of its own history, The People History is an ideal site to take a trip down memory lane, educate one's mind or just sit back and watch years of history and popular culture unfold.
