    They are all long dead and buried. Even the kids who lived to be 90.

    Life expectancy in those days was around 42 for men and 45 for women, they were definitely rougher folks.

    Though high infant and child mortality skewed those numbers somewhat.

    I love seeing old photos colorized. When everything we see from that period is black and white, it's hard to get a real feel for what it really looked like. Turns out, things had color back then too. Who knew? :dontknow:

    Actually a little bit better than that, 1900 life expectancy was 47 men, 49 women. If you made it to 65 your life expectancy was 12 years. This was for White Men and Women. Blacks expectancy was 33 and 34.
