Some photos age well -- and some photos age weird. Tech, fads -- even what people thought was pretty or funny -- was VERY different back in the day, and here's proof, via a collection of vintage photos of the United States.

The oldest photo here is from the late 1880s; the newest is from the early 1980s -- when things were still really, really different, trust. 

Our look back begins with an arresting shot from 1951. According to the photo agency, these revelers, at a Halloween festival in Anaheim, California, are dressed in "hillbilly costumes."
