Not just on the farms, either. Farming has always been hard work, so it's not too surprising to see farmers looking pretty lean. But a few years ago I checked out a DVD from the library, the name of which I can't remember. It was a collection of eight or ten short sequences from the earliest days of moving pictures, say from 1900 to 1912, in Great Britain. The scenes showed huge crowds---people at parades and patriotic rallies, factories letting out their employees at quitting time, sporting events, street scenes, etc.---so that you saw literally thousands or people. I noticed that there was not one fat person. Not one. I was so amazed that I watched it several more times just to check that very thing. (Fortunately, the video was pretty cool anyway, and the music was great, so it wasn't a hardship to watch it again.) Nowadays, I think you'd have to go to Bangladesh or Somalia to see several thousand working class people without a large number of them being some degree of overweight.

Yeah makes you wonder what we will look like as a society in 50 years. I was a fat kid in grade school and I was the only one- got picked on so much that I thankfully lost it in middle school and kept it off for the rest of my years. Went to 7 year olds play the other day and 1/4 of the little kids were obese already. I hope they shed that as they get older but I wonder??
