      “…everyone was white”………..#18 had a monkey in the pic

      • snuggles

        and i wouldn’t count the monkey’s italian as “white”

    • alf

      notice how evryone was happy?

      • top dog

        If you had lived through those times you’d know they were not happy.

          it wasn’t sarcasm >.>

    • youdummy

      Black people were not invented until the 80s.

      • anotherguy

        Not true southerners have been importing them since the early 1900’s

  • bktscrambler

    I love old-school color photos… makes the past seem a bit more realistic.

  • Irwin109

    Pictures like this always get me back to the same thing:
    “Time And Space – The Two Biggest Headfucks”

  • SAK

    Of course everyone was white. Minorities didn’t even get invented until Barack Obama got elected.

  • top dog

    A trip? whats so “trip” about it? things today look the same….ok very few women wear scrafs but other than that, things look pretty much the same, we still drive the big ass gas guzzlings cars, people still fake smiles for pictures, even the racial slurs of some of these comments are the same. I guess some people will do anything for attention…..the same as “yesteryear”.

    • Kevrobmc

      Just shut up!

  • stafferty

    #18 should be someones profile pic. I would do it myself but facebook is an evil, evil thing which only seems to containpictures of me in compromising drunken positions

    • SaintxXxAsh

      We must be friends.

  • bryainiac

    this was so weird to look at

  • Equalizer

    17 – is that a diaper?

  • McBeastie

    Remember when there were cars, and people on beaches, kids on bikes, people playing in snow, and bears…remember bears?….wow, times really have changed. Well, back to my hovercar so I can get to my office on Mars.

    • I Lolled

      You genuinely made me LOL with that “Bears…remember bears?”

      You sir must not be American. I await and am well prepared to stand corrected.

    I like how people that comment on here have come to feel like the Chive owes them something. It was just some photos of years gone by, no racial undertones and nothing to blow your mind. Just look at the pictures and shut up. As much as you all want to be deeply intellectual, it’s just not going to happen.

    • Himagain

      WAIT A MINUTE!,,,,,,,
      What do you mean the Chive doesn’t owe me any thing. The have a responsability to freely entertain me….. Thats why Al Gore invented the internets and this system of tubes.

      Get on the stick boys

  • DrOoo

    Lol. What’s with the hate. This do remind me of past times. The car models, the type of bikes and the clothing.

    People need to stop complaining so much and trying to find some deeper meaning in everything. For some people this was a cool set of pictures and someone like myself could use it as inspiration later if he needs to do something related to the past. Like… I dunno… A shoot for a fashion magazine?

    • ssss9999

      I concur wholeheartedly.

  • funkmace


  • Brian

    Ah, the good old days…….when a monkey could smoke a pipe without being hassled by the man.

  • HellHathNoFury

    These are so nifty!

  • anonymous coward

    They are the bee’s knees.

  • Goulet all day

    The year was 1976. Carrie was killing the box office. “Dogs” sucked balls. Goulet drove a 30′ station wagon.

  • Boooger

    What I noticed….. They are all skinny.
    Times have changed.

  • just_another_american_asshole

    I don’t know exactly, but I think that all these stupid American guys look like the stupid American guys who wrote the comments here. You talk about black people, you talk about fat people and even about the bloggers, but why do not you see how much of a joke you are for the world? You fat asses just sit there and wait for your death to come, drinking and smoking and thinking your old stupid country will be there forever. Your stupid Jew country.

    • BlowAmonkey

      Sooooooo……you are so much better than the folks you are slamming? Go fuck yourself. Look at the damn pictures, shut the fuck up, get on with life. Fuck…. some of you people have "Troll" all over you and bitch just for the sake of bitching. Seriously….Fucking DIE, assholes.

  • asif

    #17 would be hot but, dear God, what is she WEARING?!

  • David

    Looks like all the hipsters who live in my building.

  • Anonymous

    The only nice set is on #2

  • Someone

    My God! What kid of dark magic did this? It must have trapped their souls which will then surly be devoured by the devil.

  • Underhill

    #12 has a painted on shirt??
