  1. Ahhhh…Eugenics. Interestingly misguided scientists…

    Anecdotally I have a picture of my grandfather’s football team from 1929. Most of the guys were probably 1st or 2nd generation Irish or American kids. I have to say that some of them look like no one I’ve ever seen before in my life. It’s hard to place but the American face has definitely evolved. I think it’s partially that most people were much more slender back then. The angles were more pronounced, etc.

    I might also add the Italian guy in the photo was way ahead of his time in the hair department. His ancestors are still rocking that style on Jersey Shores.Report
