Video of the Day: "Partners in Progress," a 1954 doc on the New South

Here's a blast from the past for ya: An old documentary on Dixie's transformation in the fifties to the New South.

Just listen to that peppy yet almost ethereal muzak. Let it transport you to a magical time in our history. A time of Southern Bell. A time of trains, planes, and superhighways. A time when all we needed to improve our lot in life was progress. A time when "automobiles crowd the highways in an almost endless line." So much has changed. (h/t @wcdarling)
