1920's vs. 2016

The Progression of Engineering

Buildings

In 1930 the 40 Wall Street building was built. At a height of 927' it seems short compared to the One World Trade Center. Opened in 2014 it is 1,792' tall.

Dams

Opened in 1936 the Hoover Dam is still to this day the biggest dam in the US. It also generates about 4 billion KWh a year. No other dam has topped this yet.

Computers

From 1936 when Turing created the Universal Turing Machine to Microsoft's Surface Pro 4 released in 2014 computers have come a long way.
