Women's suffrage, the legal right of women to vote. Women's suffrage first began in 1848, when a women's rights convention was held in Seneca Falls, New York.
And from the moment the word spread, the men dramatically feared the worst... stepping into their wives shoes.
Must have been so awful being a housewife. Considering all the men who created these illustrations displaying their worst nightmare, becoming the housewife themselves. Oh, the absolute horror.
Thank you Twitter user, @RabbitThoughts, for bringing these...interesting stamps back into the limelight.
We're really torn on how we feel about these vintage Christmas stamps from the 1800s.
On one hand, they're super strange and just the weirdest...
But on the other hand, they're amazing and hilarious and we have this urge to go out into the world and collect these stamps.
One thing we do know for sure, we're in love with that one abominable snowman/ Snow-covered Cousin It, from the Addams Family.
How do you feel about them?
You know how many of us feel like we were born in the wrong era? Well, maybe this list of vintage cooking recipes will make us re-think that and make us real grateful to live in a day and age filled with tacos, noodles, pizza, and other delicious options.
Also, what in the world was with people back then and aspic's? Jellied-everything? No. Thank. You.
"The Good Wife's Guide" was originally published May 13th, 1955, in a magazine called, "Housekeeping Monthly."
As the title of the article suggests, these 18 bullet points is the guideline on how to be a "good wife." From nonstop house chores to pampering your husband and never ever questioning anything he says and does.
This article reminds us of another hilarious article from 1958 on how to find a husband.
Thank goodness times have changed because these 18 bullet points sound unbearable.

What in the world is "green coconut cake?!" When Facebook user Micala, and her mom, they were going through their things, they came across a newborn discharge release form from 1968 that had specific instructions on how to care for your newborn. As Micala writes in your Facebook post about it, "Thank goodness things have changed, I can't imagine!"
Back in the late 1800s, a group of French artists imagined what the year 2000 would look like and illustrated all kinds of scientific and everyday inventions they envisioned. These illustrations were called, 'En L'An 2000', and were originally posted onto cigarette/cigar boxes and, later, as postcards. You can view the more of the collection at Wikimedia Commons.
These are pages from an old Latvian magazine, which was published in the 1930s. Each of them contains funny illustrations made by people who lived in the previous century. We believe it will be curious for you to find out what people laughed at 90 years ago and it's nothing new as we have gone through almost all of them. Via: Pikabu
