Life in the Past Century in 15 Photos

 I always admired photography because it is capable of capturing a moment in time extremely accurately and realistically. Even these old monochromatic photographs let us observe life 50, 70 and even 90 years ago as if we were there now.

The photos showcasing the novel technologies of that time sparked special joy in my heart, as they look almost cartoony to me nowadays. 
The genuine smiles and fashion choices of people in these photos also grabbed my attention, so I’m sure that you will find something that appeals to you personally in this photo collection as well. Enjoy and share with your friends and family!
