We remember our parents telling us how cheap things were back in the 1920s and 1930s, so that got us wondering what were the actual prices of things back then, and how did it change with each decade since then? The following photos show how the prices of a standard set of goods and services changed over time. It's so interesting to see what changed and when. We certainly wish we could get some of these prices again.
