    A girl sits outside the rubble of her bombed home. This photo was taken in London in 1940.

    Soldiers decide to use their gas masks for a more… domestic purpose. Here, they are pictured cutting onions. I don’t blame them.

    Jackie the lion was the source of the first audible “ROAR” in MGM’s famous movie logo, thanks to the invention of the gramophone. He was also nicknamed “Lucky” after surviving a plane crash and a studio fire.

    An Empire State builder hanging on a crane above New York City, 1925.

    The Empire State Building took only one year and 45 days to build, or more than seven million man-hours. The total height of the building, including the lightning rod, is 1,454 feet and cost a cool 28 million dollars to build.

    Nuclear Bomb “Shadow” in Hiroshima, Japan 1945.

    How’s this for eerie: When the nuclear bomb exploded in Japan, it emitted intense thermal radiation which “bleached” every thing it hit. In the example of the picture the people were close enough to the blast that they were vaporized almost instantly but their bodies absorbed the wave of thermal radiation leaving their shadow in the surface behind them but nothing else.

    Partially excavated Sphinx in Egypt, 1878.

    The Sphinx was carved from the bedrock of the Giza plateau, a single ridge of limestone that is 73 meters long and 20 meters high. The Sphinx is considered to be one of the largest single-stone statues in the world and also the oldest, dating some 5000 years ago.

    Niagara Falls during the great freeze in the winter of 1911.

    Is it really frozen? Yes and no. The tremendous volume of water never stops flowing, However, the falling water and mist create ice formations along the banks of the falls and river. This can result in mounds of ice as thick as fifty feet. If the winter is cold for long enough, the ice will completely stretch across the river and form what is known as the “ice bridge”. This ice bridge can extend for several miles down river until it reaches the area known as the lower rapids.

    Desperate Montana men. (I think "wives" is a misnomer)

    These men were looking for wives to share their rural lifestyle with. Note the cat. Even in the early days, men knew what would really bring in the ladies by the droves.

    A train derails at the Gare Montparnasse in Paris, France, 1895.

    The derailment and wreck of the Granville – Paris Express was on October 22, 1895, after it overran a buffer stop and crashed through a (2 ft) thick wall, shot across an outside terrace and plummeted (30 ft) onto the street below, where it ended up as seen in the photos. Amazingly only two of the 131 passengers and two conductors sustained injuries.

    Men celebrate the end of prohibition, December 5, 1933.

    The Prohibition Era (1920 to 1933) was the result of the 18th Amendment and enacted by the Volstead Act. During the Prohibition Era the manufacture and sale of alcohol was banned. This was viewed as the solution to the nation’s poverty, crime, violence, abuse towards women and children and other problems. However, it created more violence and crime due to the rise of the mafia and organized crime, untaxed alcohol, political corruption and underground commerce. It was repealed by the 21st Amendment because the ‘Noble Experiment’ simply did not work.
