A Collection of Old Black and White Photographs

 These black and white or faded shots were collecting dust in someone’s attic or basement, until luckily they were dug out, to reveal some amazing scenes. What might have looked ordinary in its own day is now rare and fascinating history. Here are some seldom seen photos from decades gone by that show you how far mankind has progressed.
