Even though color photography wasn’t made widely available to the public until the 60s you can now see color images from as early as the turn of the century. It’s amazing to see that life wasn’t in black and white during those times.

Take a look at these images from the 50s, 60s and 70s and see how things have changed while also staying the same. Clothing styles have definitely changed, especially swimsuits, and it is bizarre to see streets filled with classic cars that were normal in those days.

Driving one of these classic rally cars meant you would be facing a great deal of breakdowns and malfunctioning car parts. Crashes were the norm, and pit crews were non-existent, but brave men continued to race these rattling death vehicles all over the country.

Nearly one hundred and fifty years ago the first great “funambulist”, Charles Blondin, tip toed across a large body of water with just his wits and a long balancing stick. Since then many others have taken the plunge, unfortunately some to their deaths, and walked over wide expanses. These breathtaking photos still make you wonder why the heck anyone would do this.

These dramatic and never seen before pictures of US soldiers training, resting, and on the battlefield along with other war related scenarios were all banned from publication in the United States. It seems that the censors did not want to show any weakness, give away any trade secrets or potentially embarrass the US. Protocol has not changed very much in the intervening years, but the soldiers’ outfits certainly have.

This is quite a collection of bizarre black and white photos. Some of these just made me shake my head. They sort of make you think what facebook would have looked like if they'd had it back in the twenties and thirties. "Hey Everybody, check out Junior! He is only four years old and he can roll his own!" "See, Tiffany WAS a virgin, take that all you haters!"

Sweet mullets, severely hair sprayed locks, tall bangs and jean jackets galore will make you pine for those simple 1990s times. You could throw on a tight shirt, a pair of rolled up acid washed jeans, white sneaks and hit the local mall for some food and fun. Don’t you wish you still had at least one leather jumpsuit hanging in the closet?
