Historic WTF: 22 Hilariously Bizarre Vintage Photos — No Matter the Context

Kid smoking cigarette
Is there possibly a correct context for this photo?

Many photos can seem odd if they’re taken out of context. But some photos are just utterly bizarre, no matter the context.

Mix some weird photos with the fact that they’re super old and the only correct reaction is: WTF.

Kids smoking cigarettes, kids brandishing weapons, kids being attacked by bears, kids popping out of adults’ butts — no matter which way you look at it, there is some serious WTF stuff out there.
