I wasn't sure where to put this, but decided this forum seems apt. I have little to say, preferring to let the photos speak for themselves, and quite interesting photos they are.


George Lincoln Rockwell, leader of the American Nazi Party, at a Black Panthers Rally



A teenage Vladimir Putin and friends



1979 US/Mexico Border



1978 Microsoft Staff Photo



The Bin Laden Family with a teenaged Osama in the 1970s. Osama is second from the right in the blue flares



Americans supporting the Nazis



Logging Redwood Trees, unsure of the date



A drunk Che Guavera



These are images I have some across and saved because I think them of historical interest. Feel free to add to this thread.

The ones with the loggers makes me think no wonder people died younger in the past

I can see that the rumors of Putin being the happy go lucky teen were absolutely true. He's literally lol'ing in this pic. Kind of warms the heart.

Che may be drunk but he is not drinking booze in this photo, he is drinking matte, the Argentinian national drink, It is a bitter herbal tea with more caffeine than coffee but also other compounds that calm the nervous system so doesn't make you jittery like too much coffee can. It is traditionally drunk from a gourd with a metal straw.

Good pics by the way, thanks.

Very interesting photographs! I love photography in general, and these small windows into the past are very cool to see. I only wish you had more!

If you were to select which kid in the Vladimir
photo looks like a rat, and someone you better
watch your back around, who would it be ?
Yep the little weasel in the hat.

Putin looks as if he's not as tight within the group.
Maybe he just sold them out or blew up one of their
lockers and blamed it on the hockey team ?
But who knows pics are tough to decipher moods.

And Che G that's matte de cocoa he's drinking.
Very weak Cocaine tea.
Fantastic Pics OP THANKS!

I have no physical pics to add (but a slew of mental ones!).

Great thread... nice mix of "best" and "worst."

Perspective dictates which is which.

We reasonable folks ofttimes forget how big the divide is between personal philosophies... maybe someone in a cape on a motor cycle can, one day, jump that gap?

ETA: and Putin looks like that actor who played the "rat" in Drugstore Cowboy. Max Perlich. The movie Rush, too.

And man, those civil rights era photos always bring bile to my throat... a reminder of how "primitive" many of us still are

Did you notice that there was a white guy in the pool as well and I know its a picture but it looks as though he is close to the Americans in the pool as if to help them. If I saw something like that today I'd make that ass drink that bottle, and it would be a hate crime, because I hate ass holes.

Can't believe no one commented on the Bin Laden's and the pink car! Did Osama's mom make him drive it to school? Could this be how all the problems started?


Great pics! Thanks for sharing.

I like the one with the American Nazi's. People forget just how much we supported what Germany was doing until Pearl Harbor happened.

I liked the picture of Che but I was always fascinated by him. He managed to accomplish his goals but then they weren't enough, so he reached for more losing it all in the process. Good lesson about the evils of greed and how it can play a role even when you have little material wealth. The man was brilliant (not that this is me endorsing his ideals) but just didn't know when to stop.

He failed to recognize that a country and the world are the same thing
