30 Historical Pictures That Show The World Used To Be A Much Creepier Place



Anytime you read about history, it always sounds like a creepy, terrifying place. Back then there was war, diseases, and dirt everywhere. Yes, I know we still have all of that stuff today. But it sounds like it was way worse back then. 

For example, nowadays you don't see people walking around in gas masks. But that was pretty normal back in the first half of the 20th century. People have stopped taking photographs of dead bodies for keepsakes because we realized it was easier to photograph living people. And Halloween is way less creepy than it used to be.

I know Halloween is supposed to be scary, but it used to really cross a line. You'll see what I mean below, and be grateful we are alive now.
