The world of the past was a corrupt place, (of course, it’s all relative) but I think if you threw today's problems at them, they wouldn’t know what to do.

These photos speak a different truth about what it might have been. The collection shows government censorship (sewing mouths), fast food restaurants (McDonald’s dude), and freaky mail delivery (with a scythe).

We can’t really say what the world would look like if our problems were theirs and their problems were ours, and I’m not in any rush to find out.
