Alternatively Titled : Badass Old Pictures.
On Tumblr and Pinterest I reblog and pin a lot (and I do mean a lot) of old pictures. History is my jam. I don’t talk about it much here on the blog because I’m usually too busy complaining about the weather, but all that is about to change.
Here is a roundup of some of my favorite old photos I’ve come across lately.
Marine Sergeant Grace L. Wyman.
It’s just not a roundup until someone mentions syphilis.
Elizabeth, Queen of Belgium, who worked as a nurse during WWI.
Burlesque star Gypsy Rose Lee (center) helps other performers get ready. Nashville, 1949.
Fay Wray and Gary Cooper, 1920s or early ’30s.
Above 5th Avenue, 1905, Underwood & Underwood.
Emmeline Pankhurst being arrested for trying to present the King with a petition at Buckingham Palace during the suffragette movement, 1914.
These are just a few of the old pictures I’ve come across lately. For more, check out my Tumblr blog, my History Love Pinterest board, or my Ladies and Gents Pinterest board.
See you later!
