These Rare Photos Turn 100 Years Old This Year

Now that it's 2020, we've found ourselves re-entering the so-called "roaring '20s" yet again. But have you ever wondered what it would be like if a person from the 1920s were to be suddenly transported to life today? How would you even begin to describe what a smart house is, let alone explain to them the concept of the internet? How about getting them to wrap their heads around the idea of a self-driving car? Not to mention, they would certainly have their opinions on the evolution of fashion. It would be a mind-boggling scenario, to say the least.

Now imagine that the situation was reversed, and you were transported to the year 1920. How long do you think you'd be able to last? If there is anything that these photos from 100 years ago show us, it's that even with all of the cultural progression and technological advancements that have been made over the course of the past century, we still do much of the same. From taking our morning commute and visiting the grocery store, to hanging out at the beach and celebrating the love of two people, perhaps things weren't so different after all.
