Wow, they're amazing.

Followed the link and some of them are quite startling.

A few things that caught my attention:

Quote:
4.) Fuzzy ducklings being used as therapy animals for children.
That's really something. I always thought that sort of thing was a very modern concept.

Quote:
9.) Annette Kellerman promoting a woman’s right to wear a fitted, one-piece bathing suit in 1907. She was later arrested for indecency.
Amazing. She's showing no flesh to speak of, but the very idea of a woman allowing her body shape to be visible was considered indecent.

Quote:
13.) A picture of the original Ronald McDonald from 1963.
Fuck me, that's terrifying.

Quote:
23.) Beach patrols measuring the length of women’s bathing suits in the 1920s.
So, progress but...


Quote:
26.) What lifeguards used to look like in the 1920s.
Aha, Because it's fun to stay at the YMCA right?

But it made men so angry hundreds of them gathered around her.

Walking their barbecued ribs in a bad neighborhood. Amazing.

March 7th

On 3 July 1938, the A4 class locomotive Mallard raced down Stoke Bank at 126mph to set a new steam locomotive world speed record. That record still stands.

All six surviving A4s came together during 2013/14, in an event organised by the National Railway Museum, to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the record.

Participating locos were:

Mallard

Sir Nigel Gresley

Bittern

Dwight D Eisenhower

Dominion of Canada

Union of South Africa



Mallard 75
