I remember my mom showed me a photo of her father from the 1940s and I said to her, “how old was he there?” Her answer: 35. I thought he easily was 50…so maybe the people behind these tweets are on to something…
Maybe people did age a lot faster back in the day…
Well, at least it’ll be open for debate after viewing these posts. Let’s see what these folks had to say.

2. Wow. I’d guess in their late 30’s at least.
Definitely. These are my parents when my mom was pregnant with me. They were like 23. pic.twitter.com/Eoa3wDs42D

4. Unbelievable that Wilford Brimley was only 50.

7. I love Jim Croce…but yes, he did look pretty old.
