As a kid, whenever our parents took us to visit our gramps, did it occur in your mind that our grandparents didn’t always look old? It’s mean to call someone old, but if you think about it, a child will have doubts since they are always accustomed to seeing their gramps old and wrinkled. But as we grow older, we understand human growth and thus, realize that our loving grandparents were once young and fresh like everyone else.
Most of us are lucky to be able to see our great-grandparent’s – mine are still alive by the way – while some have lost them or never got to see them in the first place. And here is where the beauty of photographs play their role. Some people have taken the time and sources to recreate their grandparent’s pictures and they are quite fascinating. You can definitely try them as well.
1. Which one resembles her the most?
“I’ve recreated old photos of my ancestors going back 200 years.”

“Apparently I bear some resemblance to my great-great-grandfather.”
3. Three generations of firefighters in the family.
“From the left: Colin Gunn in 1966, Nick Gunn in 1988 and Owen Gunn in 2015.”
