22 photos from the past that show how weird people used to be

We are sometimes nostalgic for a time that didn’t move quite as fast. Or at least a time that advanced at its own pace. Back when information was not as abundant, when we weren’t being pulled in all directions with so many things to do. In short, at a time not so long ago, but what seems like forever ago.

Above all, great strides were made in many areas in the past. Back then, there were also other ways to have fun and enjoy life. Going out had a different taste. Games were also different. Here are several reasons to invent a time machine ... and go back!
