Here are this week’s interesting historical photos. For part 74, click here.
1. Women protesting forced hijab days after the Iranian Revolution, 1979.
2. U.S. President Lyndon Johnson.
U.S. President Lyndon Johnson listens to a tape sent by Captain Charles Robb (his son-in-law) from Vietnam (1968).
3. Deadwood, USA 1876.
4. German world war 1 veteran begs at the streets of Berlin, Germany 1923.
5. The Great Sphinx of Giza partially excavated. Taken in the 1860s.
6. The Dresden Frauenkirsche, taken in January 1952.
Almost 7 years after the city was bombed and rubble still litters the streets of what was once a cultural hub.
There is a mistake in number 6. It’s “Frauenkirche” not “Frauenkirsche”.
Sorry for beeing so pedantic, but it’s “Frauenkirche” and not “Frauenkirsche”.
“Frauen” means women, Kirche means “church” and Kirsche means “cherry”.
So, it’s not women’s cherry…
Nevertheless, keep the pictures coming, best series!
The history behind that Afrikaner Commamdo pic is actually really interesting. Would love it if you guys did a kickass piece on the boer wars. Keep up the great work.
8. Finnish White Army executing Russian soldiers in the front lines of the Finnish Civil War, 1918.
Correct: Finnish Whites executing Finnish Red Rebels in after occupation of city of Varkaus, late February 1918.
