We will show you 15 such examples, and here’s the question: maybe it’s because of the shabby nature of the old photos, maybe because of the fashion of the time, maybe because of the more meaningful looks of young people from the past, maybe because of living conditions or something else – but don’t you think that the stated age of the people in the photos and their appearance are a contradiction?
