Throughout history, people have always seen the younger generation as somehow different from their elders. We at GIGGAG took an interest in this subject, and we investigated just how much young people have changed over the last 100 years. Since it’s a bit too tricky to find out about people’s personal qualities, we compared something a bit more simple, but nonetheless fascinating — young people’s appearance around the world.

We invite you to take a look at what we found — the results are fascinating!
