A Selection Of Astonishing Photos From The Past...Unique!

A picture is like a thousand words! Here are some absolutely mind-boggling pictures showing that history can't be boring. Watching one by one these photos you can briefly remember some of the most important people and facts of the previous century! What makes most of them so powerful is that they were taken in the past century, just one or two generations away from us.

1.) He stood alone, refusing to join the Nazi salute in 1936.

2.) The unbroken seal On Tutankhamen’s Tomb, 1922 (3,245 years untouched).

4.) Einstein at Nassau Point, Long Island, New York in the summer of 1939.

5.) Sweden switched to driving on the right side of the road in 1967. This was the result on the first morning.

7.) A random but poignant soldier in Vietnam, 1965.

8.) Animals used to be involved in medical therapy as early as 1956.

I really enjoyed these, don't you! In fact some of these forced me to a little research to refresh my memory or to find out more! I think that knowing history is really great, to avoid the same mistakes and on the other hand to take some good lessons! Really enlightening!
Although we did everything differently back then, these photos also show that deep down, raw human spirit never changes. Our compassion, ingenuity, curiosity, and perseverance as a species will always stand the test of time.
