This documentary release discusses the various sociocultural and sociological elements that came into play via America's post-WWII march to suburban glory - and the domestic modernity that Middle Americans ultimately incorporated into their daily lives. It combines such disparate elements as an old educational film on the merits of asbestos, an animated short about saving the suburbs, and a discourse on the dire calamities that once afflicted Philadelphia slums.
