The Retronaut


 I came across this cool website on living in the yesteryear. It really gives you an insight into the societal norms and perceptions before mass media came along. Back when propaganda was blatant and people knew little about the world around them. Also how the ideas back then shaped the world we know today.
Like Twitter!

Check out how major world events influenced culture, marketing, advertising and stereotypes.

Heres a list of some of my favourites
