Marilyn Monroe In Korea, 1954
In 1954, Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio were on their honeymoon in Tokyo, Japan, when Marilyn received an invitation from General John E. Hull’s Far East command to entertain the U.S. troops stationed in war torn Korea. Joe objected to her going to Korea at that time because he feared for her safety. She was going to do some of her shows very close to the front lines, which was still a very dangerous place at that time, but she said it was ”the least she could do.”
The Seal On Tutankhamen's Tomb Before It Was Broken In 1922
How cool is this? You’re looking at the intact seal on the tomb of Tutankhamen, in 1922. It was left untouched for 3,245 years. It’s believed that during the construction of the tomb of Ra Meses VI, the workmen dug out rock and stone from the cliff face and deposited it in an area which was in fact on top of the tomb of Tut Ankh Amun. From that time forward, no one thought to dig in this area.

War tore so many families apart, and cameras captured the potential last moments these lovers would ever spend together. Because while some came home from war, others weren't so lucky.

You know the Golden Gate Bridge, but do you know when it was built? That wouldn’t be until 1933. It was in 1935 that an architect on the project proposed it be painted an orange color that would go well with its surroundings. In 1936, the two sides of the bridge met in the middle. And sadly, eleven workers lost their lives during construction, all but one of them in a single accident shortly before the bridge opened.
Scandinavian Country Style Buffet On The SAS Scandinavian Airlines
Airplane food doesn’t exactly have a great reputation. In fact, it’s rare that you even get more than a bag of pretzels and some ginger ale unless you’re fancy up in first class. But that wasn’t always the case, as you can see from this veritable buffet on a Scandinavian flight. Soups, cold cuts, breads, desserts — you name it, you got it — all served by a stewardess thousands of feet up in the air.
