Iran in the 1970's before the Islamic Revolution. This photograph reminds me of a book I read not too long ago. It's called "Zoya's Story" and it's about one woman's amazing story, about her fighting for women's rights in her home country. You should definitely read it!
Iran in the 1970s before the Islamic Revolution. Why, why did they allow themselves to be put back in regard to women's rights centuries.

1930. Estados Unidos apenas ha asumido el ‘Gran Crack’. Un pequeño poblado chabolista se ha asentado en lo que hoy es el suelo verde más preciado de Nueva York, el mismísimo Central Park. Los llaman los HooverVilles. Los desamparados se instalan muy cerca del ‘Belvedere Castle‘, en lo que se llamaría “La calle de la depresión”. El asentamiento desaparecería en abril de 1933, cuando se reanudaron los trabajos de adecuación del parque.
This is a shanty town that sprung up in Central Park in New York City during the early years of the Depression.

Amazing! During WWII, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers needed to hide the Lockheed Burbank Aircraft Plant to protect it from a Japanese air attack. They covered it with stunning camouflage, making it appear to be a rural subdivision from the air.

A preserved loaf of bread discovered at Pompeii with impression of a baker's stamp (mid 1st century AD).
Preserved loaf of bread found in the ruins of Pompeii A loaf of bread made in the first century AD, which was discovered at Pompeii, preserved for centuries in the volcanic ashes of Mount Vesuvius. The markings visible on the top are made from a Roman bread stamp, which bakeries were required to use in order to mark the source of the loaves, and to prevent fraud. (via Ridiculously Interesting) (sigh) I’ve seen these before, but this one’s particularly beautiful.
Preserved Bread with Roman Maker's Stamp (79 A.D.) Pompeii, Italy - buried under a thick layer of volcanic ash by the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius, the site of the town was rediscovered in 1748.

Until the mid-60s, the Aborigines came under the Flora And Fauna Act, which classified them as animals, not human beings. This also meant that killing an Aborigine meant you weren’t killing a human being, but an animal.
