    Here is the way they parked cars in NYC during the 1930's. Wouldn't you love to own this group of cars today?!

    Righting the overturned hull of USS Oklahoma at Pearl Harbor, 19 March 1943

    A worker helping to build the Empire State Building in the 1930's, during the Great Depression era. No safety equipment used here and very dangerous work.

    In the Paluxy River, in Glen Rose, Texas, they found human and
    dinosaur footprints in the clay.

    Carl Stearns Clancy, an american long distance motorcycle, film director and producer. He is credited with being the first person
    to circumnavigate the globe, in 1913 on a Henderson 4-cylinder. Impressive for a first-year motorcycle manufacturer.

    This is what NYC looked like in the late 1800's. A busy place. I wonder who had the job of picking up all the road apples from the horses?

    The USS Ranger....the first Aircraft Carrier. Just look at the Bi-Planes!

    A Normandy Beach landing photo they don't show in textbooks - Brave women of the Red Cross arriving in 1944 to help the injured troops, WWII.

    Library hidden in a cave, a unique repository of ancient manuscripts known as the Library Cave. A hidden cache of 50,000 books and rolls dating from ca. 500 to 1002 AD that were deemed heretical and hidden in the cave since the early 11th century.

    "Second Class Saloon...The saloon that Wyatt Earp and wife owned in Nome, Alaska between 1887-1901
    He knew where the money was!

    It took big cajones to be a steel worker during this period, where they weren't required to use any safety lines. I mean BIG!

    This one is from 1944. Even though we both were in different wars it isn't something we talked about much so I found these going threw some of his things after he passed.

    This crew was working on the Woolworth Bldg, NYC, in 1926. Like I said...BIG ONES!

    Atlanta in the Civil War before Gen. Sherman burned the city to the ground.

    New Orleans circa 1906. "Italian headquarters, Madison Street." The streets were still dirt!

    This woman!! She cost many american servicemen theirs lives! Actress Jane Fonda sitting on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun during her 1972 visit to the country,
    as a protest against the Vietnam War. POW handed her pieces of paper with SS# on it, she gave the list to the Vietnamese, the soldiers were executed later that same day!!

    On July 10, 1913, Death Valley, California hits 134 F (~56.7 C), the highest temperature recorded in the United States. You remember 20 mule team Borax?

    A cool photo of the Eiffel Tower, Paris, in 1928.
