100 Years-Legacies


This year marks the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I.

The Wall Street Journal has provided a website that shows the lasting effect of the first “war to end all wars.”  Passports came into wide use as a security measure; Pilates was developed as an exercise for POWs; Plastic Surgery was developed to address some of the brutal injuries caused by the conflict.

The list is an amazing testament to how things we take for granted, today, were first conceived or put into practice as a consequence of WWI.
