17 Things From the Past That Can Still Be Considered Cool in 2021

Picking up a vinyl record from a store that has a pair of female panties attached to it isn’t something you see every day. What you also don’t see every day is a toilet paper dispenser that is also a radio. Things like this can make you feel very nostalgic for the past in the sweetest way possible.

Bright Side searched the web and picked 17 photos that, no matter how many years go by, will always be considered gems.
