19 Rare And Interesting Photos From The Past.
#6. The Brighton Dandies were a group of British gentlemen and swimming enthusiasts.
They got together in 1861 and are considered the oldest club of its kind in the United Kingdom. To prove how gentlemanly they were, the Brighton Dandies also wore top hats, which must have been difficult to use in the water.
#7. This vintage photo shows the early construction of Mount Rushmore.
Danish-American sculptor Gutzon Borglum started carving the heads of four major US presidents out of the granite surface of Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills in South Dakota. But the project wasn’t finished until 1941.
#8. The Maico Mobil was considered the only scooter anyone wanted to ride.
The touring motorbike was made between 1950 and 1960 by the German manufacturing company. In those days, it was marketed as a car on two wheels with body panels that protected riders from the elements.
#9. In 1985, a Chicago artist predicted what Michael Jackson would look like in the future.
By manipulating a photo, the King of Pop looked more like a businessman with a mustache. Obviously, Michael didn’t look anything remotely similar to this in the year 2000. But the artist gets points for efforts.
#10. Martin Luther King Jr., knew that being a civil rights leader wouldn’t be easy.
In this image, King was snapped removing a burning cross from his yard in Atlanta, Georgia in 1960. The little boy at his side was none other than his son who learned that the world can be an ugly place.
