A whole gallery of historically significant photos

Postby shafnutz05 on Thu Sep 27, 2012 6:47 pm

Found this on Reddit, would normally put this stuff in the random thread but thought it was too cool not to share with everyone. Unreal gallery.

That's pretty cool.

The colorized version of the photo of Custer is neat. It's strange how different things are viewed with color.

:thumb:

When I picture stuff before they really made the switch to color film, I picture it in black-and-white.

Basically I (still) think life before the onset of color photography was black-and-white.

Also, how did they take the first picture of space in 1946? I always assumed Sputnik was the first thing up there, at least in orbit?

Some super cool stuff here; thanks for posting, Shaf.

The image of the self-immolating monk and the Auschwitz-Birkenau gate are...... daunting. Had never seen contemporary color images of those things, and i have say that bothgve me pause. The SAS detachment in North Africa is 'dudes personified'.

That said, I showed Mrs. Tif the picture of the RAF Spitfire pilot getting the haircut and said, "This is why fighter pilots are so cool."

Has anyone ever heard the backstory behind this photo?

Image

Apparently, the photographer was Jewish. Goebbels was fine with him taking the picture until he got word that the photographer, Alfred Eisenstaedt, was Jewish.

Dude, you haven't lived until you've built a 200 foot tall pyramid out of something.

Side note: Do you think there's an Egyptian meme out there that says "Pyramids: You're doing it wrong!"

The dog of General George S. Patton on the day of his death (1945)


The dog's death, or Patton's?

Both actually. They both died in a car crash in Heidelberg if I am not mistaken.

I was going to post this same thing. I posted this photo in it's own thread a while back. If we ever wanted to know what pure evil looked like it's in this picture. Look at him. That's nothing but hate and evil incarnate.

Patton's dog lived for years after the war with the general's wife and children. That photo was taken a few days after Patton's death, and the dog was obviously despondent.

That picture of Thich Quang Duc is really humbling to me. The only part of his body that wasn't completely charred was his heart which is still kept by the monks today.
