These photographers may have never known the significance of the pictures they took and that millions would be marveling at them in the future. From thousands of images, I chose these to give us a rare and fascinating look at how different (and similar) life used to be.
1. Baby Cage
This handy device allowed your baby to get some fresh air without leaving the house. Or, the baby committed a felony and is now staying in the most adorable jail ever!
2. Pin Boys
Back in the old days, the pins at a bowling alley were set by “pin boys.” These days, sadly, most 10-year-old boys can’t get work and have to go on unemployment.
3. Prohibition Sign
These women won’t kiss you if you drink. Which is quite an incentive to stay sober, because these ladies look like they’re pretty wild!
