In modern use, the term "Bohemian" is applied to people who live unconventional, usually artistic, lives. Bohemians may or may not be wanderers.
@PolkaDot and @Rikki Gins , I didn't really understand how everything started to change after World War 1.
For example, the trench coat saw its rise (and was even given its name) in the desperate conditions on the front in World War I.

1919 was the end of an era. Hold onto your hats, here comes The Roaring Twenties. A time when many people defied Prohibition, indulged in new styles of dancing and dressing, and rejected many traditional moral standards.
Yes, you are correct--It's interesting how we lose context was my point!

Thank you for this amazing thread, @Rikki Gins .
I enjoy reading the news clips. My imagination runs wild.
Poor Ben Winans, the tincture of lead will destroy his mind. At least his sight was restored.
Marion County must dig deeper graves.
Henry Hallie Hornbrook died in a car accident, he drowned.
After reading about a death, you look the name up on
 https://www.findagrave.com/ ?
Dear Mrs. Thompson, you have a good sense of fashion.
Beautiful scene of the high altar in Westminster Abbey. All have their heads bowed in prayer. You don’t see that in our news stories, very often.

Oh @FISH, it is my pleasure to look for interesting clippings and other items from 100 years ago.  I've been doing this for years.  In fact, when I used to go to the local library I would print microfilm items out and post  them on the bulletin boards at places I was working at.  People seemed to enjoy reading them so I've been doing it ever since.  Now, thanks to @Bart Ell, I can reach a wider audience and I am grateful for that.

Yes, I have begun cross checking people's names on Find A Grave and I will use the info if it compliments their life stories. 

I enjoy reading your (and @PolkaDot's) comments on the various history bits.  Please keep them coming.

PS, I wonder what happened to Aunt Polly?  I can't seem to locate her advice column.

Didn’t Aunt Polly die, allowing Hill Billy Jim to leave town on a subversive job interview?
@Walks_At_Night would know.

Mine did, though I don't know of a Hill Billy Jim.

The pleasure is all mine.
This is a thread I read almost every morning and is the one thread that makes me wish I installed some sort of LIKE function so people could show their appreciation even when they have nothing to add.

There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

I wanted to pull up my roots and take a wider look at EllGab.
@Bart Ell suggested for me to visit @Rikki Gins 's threads. Thank you for the suggestion.
I read this thread every day. I wish that there was a "like" or "react" feature.  ::)

I was born with an interest in history. Every day, I read your postings. Sometimes, I repeat your stories to other people in the real world. “100 years ago” is a very clever idea. Your former coworker must have enjoyed your clippings on the bulletin board. How did you come up with this idea?
With hope, Aunt Polly will be be found.
Back to history—I don’t blame Ross for “telling”. As Ross said “but a fellow who’d sell ran kpoison like that stuff was, ought to be arrested anyway".
I feel so sorry for the RED who raised this wild calf.

Hi @FISH.  A deep interest in WWI plus three great uncles who fought in it, were the geneses of the 100 years ago column.  Why such interest in a horrible war?  Well, perhaps it was because I knew absolutely nothing about it, to begin with.  But the more I studied it, the more I became fascinated with it.  Family history played a part too.  As mentioned, I had three great uncles who fought in WWI.  Anyway, I started printing microfilm newspaper articles from the local library (this was before home computers) and that is where the clippings began to appear on the bulletin boards.  After that, I became more interested in the societal aspects of that time and by then, WWI was exactly 100 years ago and the rest, as they, is history.
