Dieselpunks

Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

While Dieselpunk's focus tends to be towards the urban areas we forget that the majority of Americans still lived in farms during the Diesel Era. The August/ September 2011 issue of Mother Earth News has an interesting account of someone who was raised on a farm during the 1930s.

At risk of giving too much of the article away, it's not very long, in the account recorded, who was a child at the time, he recalled not eating store-sliced bread until he was 16 years old. He also recalled being awakened in the mornings by his mother calling out that breakfast was ready "Eggs and Legs!", which meant scrambled eggs from the farm hens and frog legs from what the children had caught the night before. I found it to be an interesting look at a world that doesn't exist for many today and one that many of us don't think of when we think of the Diesel Era.
