Taking a Look Back to 1933

On October 3, 1933, the Singer Featherweight was introduced to the market and made quite the first impression. Let's look at what else happened in 1933:

  • The Dust Bowl years began to affect U.S. farming
  • A gallon of gas was $0.10
  • King Kong was the top-grossing film, starring Fay Wray and Robert Armstrong
  • President Franklin D. Roosevelt & Vice President John Garner were in office
  • The first Betty Crocker cookbook was available for sale
  • Prohibition in the U.S. came to an end
  • Shirley Temple signed a contract with Fox when she was five years old
  • The world population was 2.18 billion
  • Average new home cost: $5,750
  • Average salary per year: $1,550
  • Carol Burnett, Joan Collins, Larry King, and Willie Nelson were also born in 1933. An auspicious year!
