The kink of Rock N’ Role is usually seen in his glamorous outfits; however, here we have a photograph of the late king in military uniform alongside other soldiers he served with during the Second World War. This was taken in 1958, a couple of years after he became internationally loved and known, but before he changed music, as known back then, forever.
This shot was taken while Elvis was serving his country. This was two years after his first number-one hit, “Heartbreak Hotel,” was released and two years before his greatest hit’ “It’s Now or Never,” came out and went viral within no time.
The Hindenburg Disaster
Although this photo resembles the Titanic in a way, this is a photo of the Hindenburg Disaster taken on May 6th, 1937. This sensational photo occurred when the German airship carrying many passengers caught fire when it was trying to dock at a Naval Air Station Lakehurst in New Jersey. A total of 36 people were killed in the fire, and 62 people survived.
The event was marked by photographs, newsreel coverage, and eyewitness testimonies that were recorded and played back on the radio to this day. Such a rare opportunity to take this kind of photo and such astonishing footage of a devastating event.
It's not easy to try and imagine Charlie Chaplin before he became a star. He is best known for his signature mustache, hat, makeup, and attire, but in this rare photo, we see him totally raw. Here we see his 27-year-old self in 1916 before he became famous for his silent movies. Before he became well-known for his silent films, he was a writer, filmmaker, composer, and writer, among other things.
Charlie Chaplin was born in 1889 in London, England, and died on Christmas Day in 1977. His comedic timing during the silent film era in Hollywood helped him rise to fame, which we all know him to be to this day.
The Statue of Liberty
In this rare and periodic photo, we see a young child and a woman standing beside the face of the Statue of Liberty while it is being assembled in France. At the time, it was being prepared for shipment to New York to be displayed as a gift to the United States. This statue became a simple of America, both the country and its people.
This photo was taken in 1885, seen by the way the people were dressed back then. This is truly a rare and one-of-a-kind photo in this collection, presenting not only the people and how they looked back then but also one of America's most recognized symbols.
Chemical Warfare Precautions
With the Second World War rearing its ugly head in the winter of 1938, Men and women from all over the United Kingdom started to take precautions regarding Chemical Warfare. Of course, there were many rumors of a gas bombing at that time, which is why people took their own chance at safety; however, no gas was ever used.
Here in the photo, we see a woman walking down the street with her stroller, which is completely encased with gas-resistant material. This photo was taken in London in 1938, less than a year before the war that changed the world.
