We’ve done a post on people who discovered photographic proof that their parents were super cool before they chucked it all to start a family, but these images of amazingly hip grandparents might be even better.
I mean, you can’t go wrong with vintage photos – and when you add in super cool subjects? Fogeddaboutit.
