I have two photos. One is me, my mom & grandmother. I'm probably less than 2 - which would make my mother around 45 and my grandmother in her 60s someplace. The second photo is of me, my daughter, and youngest granddaughter. It's at her second birthday. We are at the beach. It is a stark contrast to the photo where I am the child surrounded by middle aged and elderly looking women. Time was way kinder to me & mine than my mother & grandmother. I loved this piece because I agree with you completely. So much has changed in the past 2 generations - 60 really isn't really all that old these days.
