Here's some more great old historical photo's.
Here is the way they parked cars in NYC during the 1930's. 
Wouldn't you love to own this group of cars today?!

A worker helping to build the Empire State Building in the 1930's,
during the Great Depression era.  No safety equipment used here and
very dangerous work.

It took great courage to be a steel worker during this period, where
they weren't required to use any safety lines. 

This crew was working on the Woolworth Bldg, NYC, in 1926. 

In the Paluxy River , in Glen Rose, Texas , they found human AND
dinosaur footprints in the clay.

This is what NYC looked like in the late 1800's.  A busy place. 
I wonder who had the job of picking up all the road apples from the

The USS Ranger....the first Aircraft Carrier.  Just look at the Bi-Planes!

A Normandy Beach landing photo they don't show in textbooks -
Brave women of the Red Cross arriving in 1944 to help the injured
troops, WWII.

Library hidden in a cave, a unique repository of ancient manuscripts
known as the Library Cave . A hidden cache of 50,000 books
and rolls dating from ca. 500 to 1002 AD that were deemed heretical
and hidden in the cave since the early 11th century.

"Second Class Saloon...The saloon that Wyatt Earp and wife owned in
Nome , Alaska between 1887-1901
He knew where the money was!

Atlanta in the Civil War before Gen. Sherman burned the city to the ground.

New Orleans circa 1906. "Italian headquarters, Madison Street ."  The streets were
still dirt!

On July 10, 1913, Death Valley, California hits 134 °F (~56.7 °C), the
highest temperature recorded in the United States . 
You remember "20 mule team Borax"?

A cool photo of the Eiffel Tower , Paris , in 1928.

Baptism in the river. From "Appalachian Life" photographic study.

No other family in American history has suffered a wartime loss like
that of Waterloo's Sullivan family. The Sullivan's gave up their five sons
in a World War II tragedy that has never been forgotten. They all were
serving on the same ship that was sunk. The Navy changed its policy,
after that tragedy, about next of kin serving on the same ship.

lleta Sullivan reads a letter from the U.S. Navy. She received two letters
from F.D.R. in February of 1943. The first informed her of the death of
her five sons in the line of duty, the second sent later requested her
presence at the christening of the destroyer U.S.S. Sullivans named in
their honor.
Can you even start to imagine the grief this poor lady had?
