Here are this week’s interesting historical photos. For part 88, click here.
1. Berlin after world war 2, July 1945.
2. Robert F. Kennedy’s wife, Ethel.
She attempts to comfort him as lay mortally wounded on the floor of the kitchen in the Ambassador Hotel. June 6, 1968.
3. Russian Imperial family – circa 1914.
4. Richard and Mildred Loving.
On this day in 1967, the Supreme Court ruled interracial marriage bans unconstitutional in the case of Loving vs Virginia – June 12, 1967.
5. The small city of Amiens.
It was located about 75 miles north of Paris, was a hotly contended site in both WWI and WWII. The cathedral is the largest 13th-century Gothic cathedral in France. Amiens was also the home of Jules Verne.
I wonder if that is Jackie Kennedy in Picture 2.
No, the caption says Robert Kenndy.
