Texas as changed a lot from the 1900’s but the most noticeable change is in agriculture. Agriculture has been one of the biggest changes especially how more efficient we get things done then from now. Most farm tools in the 1900’s were simple hand made and crafted from iron, and metal. Working with them was often slow and took up time and also Injuries were common. The beginning of the 1900’s most farmers still using saws, hoes and, shovels and other hand used instruments the quality of these tools was improved due to the growth of the steel industry. The United States was the largest producer of steel by 1900 making tougher hammer and shovel heads, sharper saw blades and other sharp instruments that cut through dense brush and thick roots. Compared too now were we have tractors with air condition and at the press of a button you can have something done for you.From back in the 1900’s were if you wanted something done you had to do it yourself.
When we went from the steel plow to a tractor that does everything for you instead of putting in work.
