25 Cool Historical Photos That Will Change The Way You See Things.
The world has changed tremendously throughout time, and that can be seen quite evidently in the photos we have from the past. We may not be able to see what the world was actually like during the formation of different societies throughout the world, but we can definitely see what took place after the camera was invented.
#1. How many full grown men can fit in a telephone booth?
That was the thing to do back in the late '50s, but definitely not for those who are claustrophobic. Don't you feel sorry for the poor guy who got in first?
#2. One of the greatest things about looking at pictures from the past is seeing the strange things that people did with their time.
Right here, you can see a "Baby Race" that took place in 1946. We're not sure why this happened, but the picture is amazing.
#3. Ever since the beginning of time, people have engaged in death-defying stunts for a rush of adrenaline.
Here, you can see onlookers watch these brave divers leap into the Thames River in 1934.
#4. The United States received the Statue of Liberty as a gift from the French in 1885, and while it was certainly impressive, this one is a bit different.
In 1918, the people of Iowa made their own version of the Statue of Liberty using their own bodies.
#5. This man sitting on Midland Beach in Staten Island looks an awful lot like Nikola Tesla.
In 1898, Tesla would have been about 42 years old. He had lots going on at the time with several successful patents so it's highly unlikely he took a job as a swim instructor.
