Old Photographs: Interesting & Scary

There's something so fascinating about old photographs. Who are these people? What's their story? Why are they wearing those weird pants? Did she want her hair to look like that? Along with being interesting, they also tend to be completely and utterly terrifying. Especially children and old people, is that age-ist? Seriously, these kids are staring at me... that little girl obviously hates me and I can't figure out why. Of course not all vintage photos are creepy... some are actually really rad.
