15 Fascinating Historical Photos For You To Ponder.
An Evil Wedding
German Federal Archive
One of Hitler's closest associates and loyal followers was Joseph Goebbels. This picture is the day he married Magda Quandt on December 19, 1931. Hitler was his best man! Hitler was very fond of Goebbels' wife and often performed as the intermediary when they fought. If you've ever been on the NYC subway, this picture won't surprise you!
First Of Many
On October 27, 1904, the New York City subway line took its very first ride. This picture you see here is of City Hall, the original southern terminal station of the Manhattan Main Line. In 1945, due to the small size and shape of the station, passenger service was discontinued to provide for the growing number of riders. Whether you're a fan of the Beatles or a fan of The Rolling Stones, you'll most definitely appreciate the next picture.
In A Train Car For Two
In the 1960s, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones were the two biggest rock bands. During that time, they hung out in the same crowds, so their interaction was inevitable. This picture shows Paul McCartney and Mick Jagger on a train heading to Bangor on August 5th, 1967. Seeing two idols together is pretty amazing, but imagine seeing four!
This picture, taken in 1921, is monumental! In it you'll see car manufacturer Henry Ford, the inventor Thomas Edison, President Warren Harding, and of course, the tire mogul, Harvey Firestone. Since Ford and Edison were good friends, they could frequently be seen on camping trips together. Later, they began inviting other men on their trips, like Harding and Firestone. If you know your pictures, you might know who took the next one!
He Captures The Beauty
German photographer, Friedrich Seidenstücker, specialized in portraits of people and animals. He's widely known for his photos of the ruins of Berlin after WWII. This famous portrait of an archer is appropriately titled "Concentration Before The Arrow Is Fired." You've probably never seen the walk of shame photographed quite like this before.
