Vacations for all

Going through these old photographs, I'm often struck by what a time of transition the turn of the twentieth century seemed to be for homesteaders. A person may be slopping the pigs in the morning and on vacation in the afternoon. Granted, there was much more hog tending than pleasure trips, but the evidence in these and other pictures seems to point to the fact that 20th century concepts like tourism and consumerism (for the masses), came very rapidly - even to the Southern Great Plains.
