These Photos That Prove Our Grandparents Were Way Cooler Than Us


Many millennials automatically assume that their generation is way cooler than previous generations—basically assuming that the younger you are, the cooler you are—but that’s just not true.

Grandparents might have been born in a different time, but they still have experienced and seen some pretty remarkable things. But in case you don’t believe us, here are 30 different photos people have posted that prove some grandparents are way cooler than we’ll ever be.


1. “My great-grandfather gave Einstein violin lessons.”


2. “My grandmother modeling for Volvo.” (1959)


3. “My grandparents wearing each other’s clothes.” (1943)


4. “Ernest Hemingway and my grandmother.” (1952)


5. “My great-grandfather was a Chief.” (1970)


6. “My grandfather the day before he shipped out with the Marines in 1941.”


7. “Мy grandmother in 1978.”


8. “My grandmother (left) kissing Louis Armstrong.”


9. “My grandfather with my dad.” (1963)
