People show off vintage photos of their parents and many joke they're cooler than them

Nostalgic social media users shared photos of their parents in their prime as part of a touching Twitter trend.

The thread was kickstarted by American journalist Adam Serwer's photo of his own parents in the 1960s. He wrote: 'My parents recently found this pic of them in the early 60s and now that I am grown I am forced to admit they were actually always cooler than me.'

People from around the world shared their own family photos in response and the best examples were compiled in a gallery by Bored Panda .

Mostly in black and white, the pictures showcased fashion and hairstyles of bygone eras, as people's relatives beamed for the camera.

One woman shared a snap of her mother at 18 years old, sporting a curled hairstyle and bold jewellery while another showed a snap of herself in the '60s and her parents at the same age.

Another image shows a couple looking very loved up on their wedding day while a picture of another two newly weds show them on their way to the Bronx Zoo for their honeymoon.
