Buying cigarettes at the bedside 1950s. I actually remember this after I got my tonsils out. LOL
Buying cigarettes at the bedside 1950's. Still into the 80's people could smoke in the hospital, in the nurses station, finally relegated to a "smoking" room then out side, then not at all..

1906: San Francisco in Ruins
As a counterpoint to the 1878 photographs of San Francisco, these are houses damaged in the May, 1906 earthquake. It would appear that the soil beneath these homes liquified, causing them to lean to one side; I'm acutally impressed by how well these wood framed structures survived.

A survey of ancient Alexandria's Royal Quarters, encased deep below the harbor sediment, is underway. Alexandria's Royal Quarters - ports, a cape and islands full of temples, palaces and military outposts - simply slid into the sea after cataclysmic earthquakes in the fourth and eighth centuries. Besides large statuary, hundreds of ceramics, bronze coins, and other items have been found.
Lost for 1,600 years, the royal quarters of Cleopatra were discovered off the shores of Alexandria. A team of marine archaeologists, led by Frenchman, Franck Goddio, began excavating the ancient city in 1998. Historians believe the site was submerged by earthquakes and tidal waves, yet, astonishingly, several artifacts remained largely intact. Amongst the discoveries were the foundations of the palace, shipwrecks, red granite columns, and statues of the goddess Isis and a sphinx. The Egyptian...

Última ejecución pública en Estados Unidos (1936)
Interesting historical photos. This one is the last public execution in the USA, 1936.
The last ever public execution in the United States, 1936. Rainey Bethea was the last person to be publicly executed in the United States. Bethea, who was a black man, confessed to the rape and murder of a 70-year-old white woman named Lischia Edwards, and after being convicted of her rape, he was publicly hanged in Owensboro, KY. Mistakes in performing the hanging and the surrounding media circus contributed to the end of public executions in the U.S.

In the 19th Century having a photograph taken was a lengthy process. Frustrated by the difficulties of getting children to sit still long enough to snap a proper photo , photographers in the 1800’s conceived of a technique called “The Hidden Mother”. Draping a sheet over the mothers head in an attempt to camouflage her as a part of the furniture to better emphasize the child, the mother was then able to hold her infant and keep them still long enough for the camera to get an exposure.

hidden mothers: "Years ago, for formal baby photos, the mother would hide under a blanket or rug and hold her baby still for the photographer"
Vintage photo of three children with their "Invisible Mother", a practice to keep young children calm for a focused image. The photos were usually placed in a frame that didn't show the mother.
Family Pictures Using the Hidden Mother Method. Too funny!
Victorian photo of children with a "hidden mother". To hold young children and get older ones to cooperate, Mom was seated with them and hidden under a blanket or decorative rug. To be fair, photography had just been invented so they were just figuring out how to do kid and baby photography.
The 'hidden mother' photos were pretty common in the Victorian era, done so that there would be a photograph of only the children. Why are the mothers always covered in a blanket or crouched behind a chair? Well, it took quite a while to set up the camera and the person being photographed had to stay put (ergo, many of them didn't smile a whole lot). As you can imagine, children would get squirmy, so they had the mother hold and soothe them, but covered up. Weird huh?
things mother do for their kids ~ Seems children were just as squirmy then as they are today, because another amusing convention developed: photographs containing hidden mothers trying to keep their little ones still enough for a non-blurry picture. These fantastic portraits of children all contain their mother, disguised as chairs or camoflauged under decorative throws behind them. #vintagephotos

Prehistoric Sea Turtle: Archelon ischyros, the giant sea turtle, lived around 75-65 million years ago in the Late Cretaceous period, a time when North America was mostly covered by a shallow, tropical sea. About 4m (13ft) long and 4.9m (16ft) wide, it is estimated to have weighed more than 2200kg or 4900lb and may have had a life span of around a century.
