26 Old Photos That Show How Rapidly Life Has Changed. Who Remembers #17?

At the library there are a vast abundance of books on virtually every historic event you can imagine. Some events have volumes of books that do a good job chronicling important milestones in the human condition. But none does a better job than a photograph.
