People are sharing pictures of their grandparents looking fierce in the past

Nostalgia levels through the roof.

It can be easy to forget what the generations before us looked like in their youth, so when an author encouraged people to share pictures of their grandparents from the past, the results were stunning.

Isaac Fitzgerald was the man who kick-started the entertaining Twitter thread, posting this image of his grandfather somewhat out of the blue.

Fitzgerald followed his tweet up with an invitation to others to share their own pictures, and as it turned out they did not need asking twice.

Twitter user @havenalba shared the following image of her grandmother with her band.

Meanwhile @luxlotus estimated this picture to be just shy of 100 years old.

Others simply shared an image with no caption, such as this one from @nickwray.

This image from @alexanderchee received over 1000 likes – can you see what’s unusual about her scarf?

And how about this Hollywood-style image from television host @alwaysalejandra.

Some posts were accompanied with tales which hinted at the era.

Meanwhile, others told stories that remain relevant to this day.

And while the past seems like a foreign country in many of the photos shared, a dog never fails to enhance a photo.

Some things never change.
