I love the past. One of my favorite hobbies is going thrifting. I especially love all the old family photos that get sent to thrift stores – they’re little glimpses into dead stranger’s lives, and for some reason I love the nostalgia and morbidity of it all.
The subreddit Old School Cool is an ever-growing database of the coolest vintage images. I’ve compiled 18 of my favorites for your viewing pleasure – enjoy!
