Remember when your mum or dad would pull out dust-covered family albums and you discovered hideously hilarious photographs of your dad in bell-bottoms and an overgrown mustache?
That’s the great thing about old photographs. These forgotten parchments of paper transport you to a different time & place when things were so unbelievably different you couldn’t even begin to imagine!
And just like how the image of your old man in a polka-dotted bow-tie brought a smile to your face, we’re sure that these rarely seen photographs will have just the same effect.
