  3. I love the old pictures, especially the 1940’s styles. The clothes were a lot better looking than those of the 1950’s which made a short person look absolutely dumpy. Tall women like Doris Day looked great but I was short. 🙂 — Suzanne

    • I’m inclined to agree. I try to avoid boring my kids to tears telling them how much fun we used to have in the days before smart phones (or any phones, other than the kind attached to the wall).

    Arguably, some of these antics continue in this era. For example, people still post ridiculous photos featuring animals.
