27 Historical Pictures of How The World has Changed

In just the last 200 years so much has changed rapidly as the human brain develops. We have made huge advances in everything, technology, scientific discovery, and much more. Thankfully way back when, the camera was invented so we can enjoy hilarious, strange, and interesting pieces of our history. We can see people that actually existed in historical events, or stories that get passed down. We can see pictures from history instead of just reading about it from what someone wrote down.

Here is only a small fraction of our history in photographs from varying times over 100 years.
