For a lot of people the past was a wonderful time where life was much simpler and easier; for some others it was a strange period of the world when weird things happened all the time.
Some people who are lucky enough to live a long life would say that the past was a really different time.
Many things they did in the past are now considered weird, dangerous, or plain and simple inappropriate.
Sometimes you hear only stories, and other times you actually see some strange events taking place in vintage photographs.
In today’s age of Photoshop and Instagram, it is quite easy for anyone to alter images and photos.
With just a little bit of practice, even small kids can surprise you as they show what they can do with your photos.
In the past there was no computer, Internet, or photo-editing software, so the likelihood that some creepy images were the results of edit and manipulation is pretty slim.
Sometimes the photos themselves were not bad. It is just that people really did some strange things in the past.
Here are just some of many peculiarities that happened in years gone by and immortalized in photographs for your viewing pleasure and bewilderment.
10 Advertisement With Women Abuse Subject Matter
Unless you have been living completely off-the-grid without TV and radio let alone the Internet for the past several decades, the first thing that comes across your mind after seeing the image is the MeToo movement.
Even in modern western society, many women still have to deal with abusive behaviors from men at work or schools and just about every place and situation. In the past, however, things were a lot worse.
For example in advertisement as shown in the image, a man is depicted as an abusive husband beating his wife just because she doesn’t serve him fresh coffee.
Apparently the abuse of women in marital relationship was considered nothing more than casual situation. It was sexist; no company in modern times would dare design an advertisement for any of its products with the same approach or subject matter.
Otherwise it would make the business go viral in a matter of seconds, for all the wrong reasons. As soon as people repost the ad, there is no way the company survives without publishing a formal apology. Even with that, the image lingers on consumers’ mind, who from now on will not want to be associated with the product anyway.
