18 Old Photos From a World Lost to Time

There's a Welsh word for the longing or nostalgia one feels for people and places lost to history: Hiraeth. More than your run-of-the-mill nostalgia we all experience, hiraeth refers specifically to a place you can no longer return to. For the Welsh, hiraeth usually calls back to aspects of Welsh culture that have eroded with time.

For those looking to escape into their own sense of hiraeth, we have below a series of photos to transport you to bygone eras -- perhaps times you remember, perhaps times you can never know, but all times that are now long gone.
