n amazing photo gives a different view of the things, rather than just listening to historical stories. It shows you how it all actually looked, letting you understand the historical moment more intimately.
We’ve all seen the famous pictures of Neil Armstrong bouncing on the Moon or a peaceful protester blocking tanks in Tiananmen square. These and many more powerful photos captured not only the image but the whole story perfectly. Apparently, there are more of those incredible shots which, for some reason, weren’t that widespread.
The brave photojournalists that took these interesting pictures saw the morbidity of wars, documented the creation of an atomic bomb, and shot stills of most magnificent constructions being built.
Below are some of the most fascinating rare historical photos ever captured on camera and collected together.
1. The Graves Of A Catholic Woman And Her Protestant Husband, Holland, 1888:
“Love unites the souls not bodies.”
Just look at the strength of this couple’s love from this photo. They were determined to be together and remained together in spite of the adversity created by the culture and the tradition that controlled the society at that time.
2. Eiffel Tower construction July 1, 1887 and completed on April 15, 1889:
This photo shows its 1888 progress, after completion of its first floor.
