Finally Released: Incredibly Rare Photos of History.

History is not made of text in old books. It's not made of photos, either, or of videos, tools, devices or even memories. History is made of people. After all, people create history, they write history and they are the only creature that CARES about it, too. But we do. Because without seeing the past for what it was, how can we look the future in the face with any certainty? These terrific historical photos have been released for your viewing pleasure, and they are fascinating.
