ATCs: What did we do before we had ...

Remember that story that your (or someone's) grandfather told about having to walk 10 miles to school, through 15 feet of snow and blistering cold winds, holding a hot potato in his mitten-less hands to keep warm? This tale (or similar version thereof) was told to illustrate a point, albeit somewhat tongue-in-cheek: how much better the current generation has it compared to previous generations.

ATC artists looked back in time and responded to the ATC theme, "What did we do before we had ___?" Some went back a few decades while others telescoped centuries to reflect on days of yore. So, take a stroll back in history when times were simpler (or perhaps harder?), and the world was more technology free and enjoy these Artist Trading Cards. In the words of Bob Dylan, "for the times they are a-changin'."
