20 People Dusted off Family Pics That Took Us Straight Back to the Good Old Days

2 years ago

We have all at one time or another looked through old albums to appreciate the beauty of the images on paper, or to refresh old moments. Perhaps for some people, digital files may not create as much emotion. Besides, life conditions back then were very different from today; education, work, and technology are just a few things that changed with time. That’s why it might be interesting to observe how our grandparents or our parents looked like at our age and how certain details were around them.

At Now I’ve Seen Everything we compiled some photographs that take us back in time with just a glance. After all, photos can sometimes work like a time machine. Don’t forget to check out the bonus at the end.
