Usually, when you read a history article or story, it's mostly just dry facts and your imagination. But an amazing photo gives something a bit different. It shows you how it all actually looked, letting you understand the historical moment more intimately. Whether it would be a historical landmark, a famous person or random old pictures of the past - they all have fascinating stories behind them, and we're just about to show you.

The brave photojournalists that took these interesting pictures saw the morbidity of wars, documented the creation of an atomic bomb and shot stills of most magnificent constructions being built. You might not be aware that the city of Tel-Aviv used to be just plain dunes or how someone looks after literally falling from space. Keep on scrolling to take a look at Bored Panda's list of rare historical photos that might shine a new light on how you saw these crucial moments.

Wondering how historical photos taken in black and white would look if they were restored in color? Check out this article.

I can't even imagine going through that. It makes me sad not just for her but that there were that many people in one place being so mean and hurtful to a fellow human being. We like to think things have changed but there is still plenty of people to fill 1000s of high school auditoriums, who would act the same way. :( I would be heartbroken if I found out my kids ever acted this way.

Ginger snap that's why it's important to set a good example. Racism, bigotry and bulling aren't born traits they're learned. So it's up to those of us that want to see this change to set an example for the change. Be careful of how we express our anger and sadness because we always have our children watching

The ones who want to cause havoc, clowning around and being disrespectful should be in a separate school so as not to interfere with the ones who want to learn. Congratulations Dorothy Counts Scoggins for making something wonderful out of your life despite the animosity you faced !!

In reference to photo #1 Is THIS what Trump and his followers mean when they chant his political mantra, 'MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN'?

jevais

The last time I went to the States I saw that WASP were still going strong. The Amercian government interferes throughout the world in business that does not concern it. Also, thanks to the States attacked of in Irak and having a full war, we now in Europe have none stop terrorist attacks every week. The United State should mind its own business and leave the rest of this planet alone. We would have much less problems. Apartheid still exists in the U.S.A.. The native Amercian Indians are still kept apart in reserves, Afro-Americans are still considered by whites as lower cast. White police kill more black men than anyother ethnic group.

Donald McLeod
Community Member

The US isn't perfect, but your comment is wrong in many respects. Native Americans can live wherever they want. A large number choose to live on land that has been ceded by the government and is there own, sovereign land. African-Americans are treated poorly by some people, but the majority of Americans are not hostile to them at all. White police kill twice as many white people as black people every year- still statistically unbalanced, but directly in conflict with your comment. Does America make mistakes? Absolutely. Should we mind our own business more? Many Americans would like to, but every time a conflict springs up in the world, it seems like the world says "America should do this" or "America should do that."
