13 Photographs of Defining Events of the 30's and 40's

 Let us gently carry you back into simpler times. We all know it by now, escapism is the BIGGEST trend of the passing year, and between you and me, who doesn't need it every now and then? Especially in rough times like these. The reason for said escapism is, obviously the grinding of everyday life. In order to overcome obstacles successfully, and bring ourselves closer to the future, we all require a reminder of our legacy and of how capable we are. A simple look back can remind you of all the mountains you already climbed in your past. The past is a valuable source of strength and we tend to forget that. We are here to remind you of that. Jump in!
