Thanks for adding those


I have a ton of old pics of the US but very few of the UK so they're very welcome!

The Lacemakers picture.
It looks so peaceful, No traffic No phones, just a lazy summers day.

Great thread !
It makes you realise that even fifty years ago, life was totally different to the way we live now.

As one of the most poignant lines in a B movie springs to mind for this.

"A moment frozen in time", how many of those photos will survive us and our facebook selfie era. We look at pictures like these and think "What was their lives like" with no facebook, computers, health and safety etc.
What will future generations think of our time and the things we take for granted now, what will they think of our way or life, our technology?

Last year I went to Beamish Museum up in the North or England and whilst looking at the 'historical' artifacts (Beamish is a town from the steam / coal era ) there was a cabinet of 60's and 70's even some 80's gear and a young child of no more than 8 saw an old Spectrum 128k tape computer on display and asked his father what it was?
Of course the guy told him what it was and what it did and and the child went "EERrrhhh it looks sucky, bet its not as good as my phone".

I wonder what pictures will be left behind for future generations will be left behind seeing as we seem to store most of them on digital format nowadays. What will remain if some thing happens to the storage devices, will they simply fade into the past or will by some happenstance some moments frozen in time remain for future pondering?

I've often wondered about that. Many people dont realize that the prints they run of from their printers will fade. I've got photo's I printed of no more than ten years ago and the colors are already fading, what will they be like in 50 years?
I am the keeper of my families digital photos, there's hundreds of them, and I have them duplicated on several hard drives just in case a drive should fail. DVD's are not reliable long term, and neither are usb sticks. Secure long term storage is a problem.

@ VoidHawk - As requested




Goebbels, Hitler’s Propaganda Minister. 1933 in Geneva.


If Memory serves me right, this is a photo taken by a Jewish Journalist. Goebbels had been informed of that just prior to the snapping of the photo.



As requested -

Behind the Picture: Joseph Goebbels Glares at the Camera, Geneva, 1933


The unsettling image of the Third Reich’s propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels, glaring at photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt during a League of Nations conference in 1933 remains, 80 years later, one of the signature—and certainly one of the most unflattering—portraits ever made of any high-ranking Nazi figure. In the photo, Goebbels’s bony hands grip the arms of his chair. His tense posture transmits an almost palpable enmity. Hunched, wary, Goebbels resembles a seething homunculus.

If any picture from the pre-World War II era captured the sheer malevolence animating the Reich’s ideology and actions, it was Eisenstaedt’s photo of Goebbels at the Carlton Hotel in Geneva.

I'll make a small contribution from my home town, although nowhere near as fascinating as the OP...

This is Curwen hall, built around mid to late 1300's, Mary Queen of Scots spent her first night in England on the run here in 1568, where she wrote a letter to Queen Elizabeth I.....I on the other hand simply fell off the top and gashed my leg attempting to get inside.....




Pow Street late 19th century:



The pub, late 19th century (not sure which one):



Some random woman (Liz something) visiting the docks mid 20th century:



Harrington Road, early 20th century(?) waiting for some other random person:



A shop on Wilson Street, possible late 19th century:
