There is still no such thing as a time machine to be able to travel to the past and be able to meet historical figures or arrive at key moments, however, photographs are perfect aids to be able to remember what may not be possible.
Thanks to cameras it is possible to capture people, animals, landscapes or moments that we would like to revisit from time to time in our memories. That is why it is so important to save the photos, because little by little they build a personal and collective history.
The following images are a little walk through the past, probably your parents, grandparents or great-grandparents had to see, witness or hear about it, but not you, you are living another time.
Don’t forget to take lots of pictures for future generations to see how we lived at the beginning of the 21st century.
