I found a sentence on Google. This is

"People of long ago wore a watch on a chain tucked in their vest pockets.".

Can we use "long ago" as noun?

    The locution of long ago is idiomatic. Time-phrases often have both nominal and adverbial uses, "The cities of tomorrow", "they're arriving tomorrow". – Tᴚoɯɐuo Jun 27 '17 at 13:51
