The Uncle Sam Chronicles As a young nation, America didn't have all that much time for fads and crazes, since most of us were more concerned with mundane things like clearing fields. building cabins. farming. raising children and working. When people did get together for a little fun, well. there were always witch trials, or killing buffalo from the observation car of a transcontinental train. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were patrons of cock fighting, and by the mid-1800's phrenology became popular. Generally, however, there just wasn't very much to do. Leisure industries didn't boom until the 40 hour work-week became widespread. Cycling was introduced in the l86O's. The first were unicycles known as Flying Yankee Wheels. They were popularized by gymnasts. but sales dropped when people began to discover that it took a gymnast to ride one. High-wheeled bicycles followed, and the taller a rider was. the bigger a front wheel he could straddle. Short men took up tricycles. By the turn of the century the bicycles back wheel was the same size as the front and bicycling became the first true fad. followed quickly by roller skating, and then roller polo, which was a kind of ice hockey on wheels. When the Civil War ended, fighting men brought home a wide assortment of diseases, and an insatiable demand for remedies and patent medicines. Cures were invented for liver ailment, falling hair, tuberculosis, flabbiness, impotency, indigestion, cancer, polio, and warts. You could order any of them from a wholesale house in Chicago or St. Louis, for 25C plus postage and handling. Two reasons for the popularity of these remedies were the most common ingredients: alcohol and opium. Even if people weren't actually cured, at least they didn't care so much. Trading Cards swept the nation in the mid- 1880's, depicting baseball players, politicians, and music hall performers. Playing cards were circulated with caricatures of political figures, and there were even trading cards that pictured patent medicines. Jazz music's journey up the Mississippi from New Orleans to Chicago is well chronicled, but by the turn of the Twentieth Century it was another indigenous musical form. Ragtime, that was sweeping the country. Nothing remotely as popular appeared on the musical scene until Bill Haley, Fats Domino, Chuck Berry and their friends blew open the l950's. AFTER THE LDA? June, 1888. George Eastman patents and registers his Kodak No. l, a camera which uses roll film and does not require a tripod or table for support. 1889.
