“Life is all memory, except for the one present moment that goes by you so quickly you hardly catch it going.” – Tennessee Williams
More than three thousand articles deep, ClickAmericana can best be described as a labor of love — one person’s drive to allow others to revisit half-forgotten recollections of days gone past. But it’s also a bid to honor those who created American history — from the architects to the artists, photographers and pop culture icons, soldiers and slaves, capitalists and consumers, the inventors and industrialists — and all who witnessed the ups and downs life in these United States over the years.
In particular, though, this site relies largely on those who documented the past through words and pictures that allows us to refresh our memories. You’ll find vintage ads, recipes like your grandmother (or your parents) used to make, together with videos, music, articles, photos and more.
Hope you’ll take some time, look around and remember… while we keep preserving the past, one page — one photo — one memory at a time. :-)
