Nostalgia: Children Having a Grand Ol' Time

Remember how children used to enjoy themselves before the invention of the Internet and the Smartphone? Before television had dozens of channels, playing cartoons 24/7? Nowadays, the computer becomes our children’s best friend, and sometimes they spend too much time on it. It’s always nice to reminisce about the time when we were young, and that to have fun, we would leave the house to see and explore the world. These 19 vintage photos from around the world depict a time where staying inside was a punishment.
