30 years later

Tobu is running an ad campaign for their Spacia train. It's a nostalgia CM - four adults revisit Nikko together after 30 years. They chat on the train, tour the sights, then take a snapshot together and the ad dissolves into a photo of them 30 years before. But wait...

This is them* in 1979 (there's a date stamp in the lower right corner). I was 13 that year; they look to be a similar age, don't you think?

And this is them now. Did they age a lot faster than real time? They look a little older than 43 to me...

*In case you were curious, it isn't really the same people 30 years previous. Compare the photos - the tree line is exactly the same.
