Wow, I love this!! Well, to start, the original ones had a neck. You see, English Bulldogs nowadays don't have a neck really. Look at my Yoda!! Or, the pictures you posted are the perfect example. The original ones were taller and thinner, in much better overall (healthier) shape than our bullies nowadays. Our bullies tend to be very, very heavy set, the legs are shorter and sometimes rounder, which is so bad. Did I see a tail on one of the dogs in picture #1? I wasn't sure!! But I ahve to say, the 21st century bulldogs are just TOO CUTE. I know we shouldn't simply think of the exterior, but they are just adorable. Their grumpy, "old man", hanging cheeks look...I love it!

Great observation on the length of their necks...
