American Maker

Of all things Americans are… We are Makers. With our strengths and our minds and spirit. We gather, we form, we fashion. Makers and shapers and put-it-togethers.

    That was full of so much ego.

    All countries have makers. How many they have is usually based on need and free time.

    @BigD145 – it’s not ego, america at the time and even now has a lot to celebrate — it’s more about pride as opposed to say how you’re better than someone else.

    Awesome video! It’s’ amazing that all of that was modern and state-of-the-art at the time.

    The video work also has evolved. That’s really interesting too.

    I thought it was pretty good.If your a maker you would like it because of the “built it in primitive times” phone switchboard , the model plane , the radio sound crew, (a bit to long) and…. for the vintage propagandist and the shy teen, That was to good. What simpler times those were. 2 thumbs up.
