Some amazing photos of past times

I don't know about you, but I'm totally obsessed with black and white photos and looking to see where we have come from, most of the designs from the brand are based on times gone by and usually have a little antique theme.

I came across some of these really cool shots from the past 100 years or so. Some are totally mind-blowing. Check out some of my favourite below.

Its seeing images like this where I think, almost everyday we are so lucky to be born in this time now, privileged with equal rights and able to live without fear. It doesn't half make you think...
