HHS Preserves the 20th Century

The 20th Century is our past, and it is important to save the things that relate to it.

Have you noticed how much telephones, for example, have changed through your lifetime? Well, children today are fascinated by, of all things, a dial telephone! They try to punch in the numbers by sticking their fingers in the dial! The innovations of the 20th Century are so recent that we don’t think of them as part of history, but they are.
