61 Nostalgia-Inducing Posts Remembering The Good Old Days

Rob Sheffield, a veteran rock and pop culture critic and staff writer for Rolling Stone magazine, wrote in his memoirs that nothing brings to life the times you lived through and the people you shared those times with like an old mixtape. Maybe to some. But I will argue that photos can do just the same.

There’s a subreddit dedicated exclusively to nostalgia with over 853,000 members. There, people share photos, reminiscing about the past, and they hit right in the feels as much as a mixtape should. From the torture device known as the “Sit and Reach” test to “the pipes” screensaver we all were watching for entertainment at one point in our lives, it has it all.

“Whether it’s an old commercial or a book from your past, it belongs in /r/Nostalgia,” the mods said about their subreddit, adding that the content can be both humorous and sad. So grab your rotary phone and invite your friend over — this is going to be a wild ride.
