Even though we are told about what has happened in the past, most of us these days didn’t live it. Photographs are one of the greatest ways to get the feel of being there. These images give you hints of people’s personalities and conjure up emotion from within. I love looking through my family’s old photo albums. I wonder if hundreds of years from now anyone will thumb through old photographs. With today’s technology it is highly doubtful.

Which one surprised you the most? Let us know in the comments.
