That’s so true. I for some reason didn’t notice that. There sure do have a lot more just in their step too.

Pretty cool, and all before WW1.
Notice the regular people dressed nice, and proper, not like the bums today you see everywhere.
Yeah well fashions change. :pardon:

Although it seems everyone dressed nicely back in the day...on average they bathed once a week, didn't have deodorant, wore a lot of wool and other heavy fabrics and undergarments, sweated like pigs.....so they STUNK.... :poo:

I had a wool blanket as a kid, everyone hated them, but with my skin being dry as it is I loved the thing.
As for stink, few today bathe, and they dress worse than bums do. I call people out when I go to the stores for their stink, telling them where the soap isle is.
Some smokers are the worst, crap, pee, and cigarettes. :yuk: :yuk: :yuk:

That's because you live in middle America with all the Trump supporting racist hicks.... :laugh:

Everyone out there smells like chewing tobacco, PBR... and trailer park despair.... :rofl:

What;...you got something against pink hair, facial piercings and obnoxiously visible bad ink?...😆

That's not very tolerant of you......😋

Sorry my intolerance has no bounds, I have sent many people crawling off to hide their stinky ass.

As for the hair, I told one girl it looked like a cotton candy machine exploded on her head, she didn't take it as an insult.
She was working at Lowe's as a cashier :facepalm: they have a green haired one also :kez:

I posted on this photo on this thread earlier but some new details are very welcome. That guy struck gold with his ten dollars. None of them look like fun guys that I would want to hang out with.

I used to look through the old photos at the flea markets, I gotta wonder if I missed something like that .
You see a lot of interesting stuff in the old photos like how things changed, and how things where.

No interest in computers as of yet.

I couldn’t watch the second video for some reason however the first video makes a very convincing case that that actually is another picture of Billy the Kid.i wonder how I would have gotten along with him.

Likely I would have shot him, give him red hair, and he would look like a cousin of mine.
Note, my cousin has been in prison a few times, funny the similarities.

What a unique world he lived in with Indian battles to wary of. The police didn’t have phones radios or computers. There were only about thirty white guys in his age group around. He wouldn’t have been well read and I doubt that he had much of a sense of humour either. He doesn’t look like a fun and happy positive guy. I am sure that he would have had some experiences to tell though.

Billy the Kid was only five foot four ? I know people were far shorter before our food got full of hormones and steroids. He dressed up as a girl and waitressed for the people looking for him ? Perhaps he had some personality. This is a first hand account related by the pal of his to his grandson.

I think I watched that a long time ago when the History channel was about History.
