When looking at the majority of historical photos, it might seem that the world was black-and-white and all we had were wars and disease.
However, Bored Panda has gone back in time, and dug out some of the most heartwarming and adorable photos from days gone by.
From a boy receiving a puppy as a present from his grandad, a hospital-bound girl being cured by ducklings, a Victorian couple cracking up as they try and take the 19th century’s equivalent of a selfie, and many others, these photos will certainly bring a smile to your face.
And best of all, these delightful photos show that despite being from a different era, one things hasn’t changed over the years – it’s still the little things that matter.
