20+ Pics That Prove Families Create the Best Memories

According to historians, the oldest-known family picture was taken in 1875 at Stonehenge. This discovery highlights that collecting photo albums of our best memories isn’t an entirely new practice that only dates back to the rise of social media and smartphones. It seems that ever since the invention of cameras, families have been documenting their most cherished moments and attempting to preserve them forever.

The Bright Side team has put together a collection of some of the most interesting recreations of family photos in an attempt to prove that some things never change, even when the years pass.

1. “Started in the backpack, now I’m here with my son, 34 years later.”
