The idea of this contest is to take a photo representing days gone by, or days past...The image has to have something or represent a period in history at LEAST 50 years ago or older. Monuments and landmarks are NOT permitted, as in taking a photo of Stonehenge, or the Roman Colosseum, but you may photograph antiques, people dressed in period clothing etc.
NOTE:Also for this contest, we are not allowing buildings (external shots) for the sake we just had a buildings contest already.
This contest is open for all levels. This contest is in finished. Check out the winners below!

friiskiwi: Only dial phones, and local calls were expensive, you even had to book to make an overseas call, record players (vinyl). You knew smoking wasn't good for you, but had no idea how bad it was, drinking and driving was discouraged, but everybody did it.
No microwave ovens, everybody cooked and baked, and made their own clothes.

Dated 1904, this tiny silver overlay flask was kept close to the bedside for that little nip before getting under the covers. The built in cup fits on the flask bottom. The silver overlay craft is long forgotten. (250 days ago)
