With the advent of social media, recreating vintage photos to share with the world has become a popular pastime.

These modern versions of grandparents' pictures feature people from all different walks of life, from soldiers who trained at the same base as their grandfathers to women who could be their grandmother's twin had they been born in the same era. This heartwarming journey through history honors the grandparents who helped shape their grandchildren into the people they are today.
