In all of human history, we have observed that the older generation is somehow different, in terms of appearance, from the younger generation. We at SurpirsePlease took an interest in this vintage subject, and we explored just how much young people have evolved over the last 100 years. Because it is a bit too tricky to find information about people’s personal characteristics, we weigh in on something a bit simpler, but nevertheless intriguing — teenagers’ appearances around the world. SurprisePlease respectfully invites you to take a glance at what we found — the results are fascinating to see!
