There is a significant difference between the world we live in now and the one that existed many decades ago. Several things have evolved and many things have altered through time. Most of us now have the freedom to make any choice we want, to wear whatever outfit we choose, and to do anything we want.
However, the globe was not always thus smooth and pleasant. Wearing a little skirt or a bikini in public was deemed a crime, and individuals were forbidden from doing what they wanted. Going outside of the prescribed order caused havoc, so we thought we’d share some images with you to show you how the world worked back then.
Scroll down to examine these photographs and see how the world worked back then and today. Remember to share your ideas with us as well!
