According to Eliot Glazer, "Before the fanny packs and Andrea Bocelli concerts, your parents (and grandparents) were once free-wheeling, fashion-forward, and super awesome." It's hard to believe, but he has evidence. His photoblog, My Parents Were Awesome, shows vintage photo after vintage photo of parents before they were parents, back in the day, looking cool.

The photos are all user-submitted, and span about a century of photographic evolution. Glazer will be on All Things Considered today, so be sure to tune in. You can e-mail submissions to his site, or upload photos of your awesome parents to our Flickr group.
