You used to age faster

You used to age faster

In the past you didn’t get old – in the truest sense of the word. The average life expectancy of a person in the Middle Ages was around 25 to 30 years. Conversely, this meant that childhood was over quickly and at 15 you were practically ripe for the midlife crisis. But even in our not too distant past, people seem to have aged faster than they do today. At least that’s what the following pictures suggest.

The parents and grandparents were also young once. But if you look at the following family pictures, one suspects that people used to age much faster.
