One can only imagine what the pastime of yesteryears was before the advent of radio, television or even the luxury of the Internet.
Surely, they did not just sit around, sipping tea and gossiping, or talking about the politics of the day.

They must have done something for fun, and we have caught a glimpse of what it was.
If they could do it, we should be able to, as well.
Take your time to peruse these images and see if you can spot the illusions therein.
Let us tackle this one of the dog which is called ‘Where is my master?’
If the dog is asking, then that means the master must be somewhere nearby. Give yourself a few minutes? Any luck?
We found the master cleverly tucked in the dog’s cheek. Hint: Look out for the profile of a man’s face, not the full image.
Were you able to see the man? If you didn’t, don’t beat yourself up. Keep trying to push your brain past its limit.
We can see that people from the 19th century knew how to task themselves and have fun while at it. They were smart fellas. Can you beat them at their game?
