A Technological Guide to the Suburbs: "Country Life in America."
Bussel, Alan
In November 1901, "Country Life in America," an illustrated monthly magazine aimed at readers interested in suburban living, was introduced to the public. Although initially intended for the rural population, it soon concentrated its appeal on city folks who had the disposable income to purchase the automobiles and other products of the technological age that were advertised in the magazine's pages. For city people who dreamed of suburban homes but were reluctant to forego the comforts of the city, "Country Life in America" offered an outlet to rural life. For those with the capital to make their dreams come true, the magazine provided a wishbook and a guide. "Country Life" ceased publication in 1942 after a profitable period as a magazine that appealed to and reflected popular culture values during the time when technology was introduced to the public on a mass basis.
