Our grandparents may have gray hair and a lot of wrinkles, but once they were young, faced many problems in life and experience joy as we do now.
To honor their passage through this world, and to express affection toward them, the people in these photos have decided to travel back in time to recreate old photographs of their grandparents.
Below you can find a collection of some of the best grandchildren as they try to imitate their grandmothers and grandfathers, and you’ll be amazed at the amount of effort they have put into this. But it has definitely been worth it. You can find grandchildren who have visited the same places in the photo and have even dressed in identical costumes, these people have joined with their ancestors to another level.
