This is adorable Shirley Temple; surrounded by Disney characters, every little girl’s dream comes true. It was taken on December 23rd, 1937 when Temple was escorted by the dwarfs to the premier of the premiere of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” which just came out. Shirley Temple was no stranger to the camera, and she loved it just as much as it loved her.
Temple was an adorable child star best known for her performances in “Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm” and “Little Miss Marker.” In later years, she became the honorable American ambassador to Ghana and the former Czechoslovakia.
Making the Berlin Wall
This is the Berlin Wall when it was built back in 1961. This wall was designated to separate East Germany and West Germany after the division of the country following the outcomes of the Second World War. It was built by the German Democratic Republic to cut off the Western part of the City, both ideologically and physically.
In this rare image, the people on the Eastern side of the city are the ones building the wall, while the ones on the Western side have no clue as to what is about to happen to their beloved capital. It would be a further 30 years before the world changed, and the wall would be torn down.
Although England didn't have camps and Germany didn't invade the land, during the Second World War, England, and especially London, was under constant bombing. This was called "The Blitz," and it left many parts of the city in total destruction. This photo was taken in London in 1940 and features a little girl amongst the ruins.
During The Blitz," many children were evacuated out of major cities and were moved to the countryside, or in worst cases, were shipped to other countries as the government did everything it could to save the younger generation. Australia was one of the places these kids were shipped over to.
The Original Ronald McDonald
This is a photo of the original Ronald McDonald before he became what he is now. In 1963, this is how he looked like. This famous clown was the live logo for the fast food chain. In this photo, we see him carrying a tray of fries and drinks as he waves at the crowd and the photographer. At the time, his face was made of a cup nose and face paint that looked like a clown's.
Ronal Macdonald went through a few changes over the years, and in 2016, he left the brand for good. The resemblance of the McDonald's icon to a scary clown was never properly dismissed and caused a few controversial episodes over the years.
The Baby Cage
During the primitive years, people used baby cages like this which were meant to make sure that children were getting enough sunlight and fresh air. Seems a little dangerous, but that’s how people used to do it back then. This photo was taken around the year 1937 in a high-rise apartment building.
The cage consisted of a bed and was named "The Health Cage." Fresh air and ventilation were believed to be key for fighting pandemics, and this gained great popularity in the 1930s. The rise in urban automobiles and the question of safeness gradually brought down the use of the phenomenal.
