The real wild, wild west. “Between 1887 and 1892, John C.H. Grabill sent 188 photographs to the Library of Congress for copyright protection. Grabill is known as a western photographer, documenting many aspects of frontier life — hunting, mining, western town landscapes and white settlers’ relationships with Native Americans. Most of his work is centered on Deadwood in the late 1880s and 1890s.”

This image of Florence Thompson from the 1930s came to be associated with the great depression, for years to come. Thompson was a poor migrant mother at the time, like so many others. The expressions of worry and anguish on her face, literally speak of the mood of thousands of others during the same time.

Mistaken Identity: Click picture for full story
Mistaken Identity In 1903, a prisoner named Will West arrived at Leavenworth. The record clerk took the photographs above and, thinking he remembered West, asked whether he had been there before. West said no. The clerk took some measurements, went to the file, and produced another record, bearing the name William West. Amazed, the prisoner said, “That’s my picture, but I don’t know where you got it, for I know I have never been here before.” Incredibly, this was true. A different William West had been serving a life sentence at Leavenworth since 1901, and the new prisoner had the same name, face, and measurements. The case became a strong argument in favor of the new science of fingerprinting. http://www.futilitycloset.com/2011/04/29/mistaken-identity-2/
A case of confused identity
The man above was called Will West - the man below, William West, and they were both sentenced to jail at Leavenworth Penitentiary in Kansas over 100 years ago. They looked identical and even shared the same name, but the two prisoners pictured were actually different people and their remarkable case helped bring in the era of fingerprint identification. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1392418/The-amazing-pictures-sparked-need-fingerprinting.html

The blond man on the left, behind the child shaking President Reagan's hand, is Vladimir Putin, then a KGB Agent, posing as a tourist.
In the photo above, Reagan is talking to a young boy. The man standing behind the kid with a camera around his neck? Vladimir Putin. Turns out that Putin, a KGB agent, was undercover as a tourist. Can’t have the American president meeting random citizens in 1988 Russia. Russian authorities, however, deny that the camera-wearing tourist is Putin.

In the summer of 1817 some members of the family began seeing strange looking animals around the property.

The author of The Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx’s ideas, words, and writings would go on to influence generations. While on his deathbed, Marx’s housekeeper went to his side. She requested he tell her his last words, so that she could record them for posterity. Marx scoffed:“Go on – get out. Last words are for fools who haven’t said enough.”
