These Forgotten Photographs Show What Motherhood Looked Like Decades Ago.

Photographer Ken Heyman recently came across a box full of his work that was forgotten about for decades. The box, which was labeled Mothers, contained amazing pictures of what motherhood looked like from the mid-to-late 20th century. The photos were taken all over the world and prove that, while many things change from place-to-place and year-to-year, a mothers love is not one of them. Take a look!
