Parents today wail about the bizarre antics of their children; from piercings to tattoos to teen taste in music. How easily they forget the strange undertakings of their own youth! They say history repeats itself; maybe that's the case, who knows? This collection of photos from days gone by do make a good case that it doesn't matter what era we are born in, young people will be who they are. Adventurous, bizarre, a little "out there", downright weird. And just remember: to your children and grandchildren, your old photos will be proof of how bizarre YOU were 'back in the day'.
If you lived in the 1920s and decided you wanted to learn to swim, but you didn't have a pool or ocean front property or a river or creek to go to, what were you to do? This photo shows the solution they came up with: a rather unique way of learning to swim. Question: if you don't have any water around where you can learn to swim, why do you need to learn to swim? It's not like you're going to fall into deep water and drown.
