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.

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?
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.
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.
