Let’s get in the Dixie Electric, Plumbing, and Air time machine for a quick trip back to 1908 , the year we opened for business. Maybe the first thing you want to do when you arrive is have a little snack. You could start with a Hershey candy bar for two cents. A trip to the grocery store will include buying eggs for 14 cents a dozen, and sugar for four cents a pound. Of course, the average wage is 22 cents an hour, which amounts to $572 a year if you worked 50 hours a week for all 52 weeks of the year.
If you stuck around for all of 1908, you would have witnessed some impressive firsts:
- The first Model T was produced (it sold for $825)
- The first passenger went airborne on a Wright Brothers airplane
- The first New Year’s ball drop in Times Square
