Here, we have put together some vintage photos of people’s grandparents to prove how much cooler their lives were from ours.

You would really feel bad about how you look if you found out this is what your grandpa looked like when he was about your age.

Don’t confuse this fine man with the great Lawrence of Arabia. It’s just someone’s super cool grandpa showing off a horse he trained during World War II. It looks like he’s escaping from an evaporating world fuming with flames. The picture taken during the 1920s is a great example of how brave people during this era were.
