Not sure if we've had this before, but here goes anyway. The name says it all, lets see some choice historical pictures and an explanation if you can.

I will start with a few pictures.


Here's Adolf Hitler at age 11

RE: Historical Pictures Thread
Black man hanged by Union soldiers for "insulting a white woman".


The field of public relations being very much in its infancy, the upshot of this salutary demonstration seems not to have been conveyed to its target audience; so, when a defending Confederate battery caught sight of the gallows being thrown up in brazen view of its own lines, it jumped to the not-unreasonable conclusion that the Yanks were about to make an example of a southern spy. Rebel guns promptly made the Union detachment their “target audience.” An artillery shot struck one Sgt. Maj. G. F. Polley (or Polly) and “tore him all to pieces” before
[a] flag of truce was sent out to inform the enemy that a negro was to be hung who had insulted a white woman the day before; they stopped firing. We then marched back and saw the negro hung.
The return on investment for the souls of Johnson and the misfortunate NCO was altogether unsatisfactory:
The incident was cleverly turned to advantage by the Confederates, who had been losing hundreds of Negro laborers by desertion. The Rebels marched Negroes past the spot, pointing out to them the perils of fleeing their lines, saying that the Yankees hanged all ‘Contrabands.’ For weeks nocturnal escapes of Negroes ceased on that front.



Confederate infantrymen, members of the Army of Northern Virginia, pause at the corner of Market and Patrick streets (an intersection known as the Square Corner) in Frederick, Maryland. This candid image was probably taken on September 12, 1862, two days prior to the Battle of South Mountain, by an unknown photographer who was perched on the second floor above Jacob Rosenstock's Dry Good & Clothing Store. This is believed to be the only extant photograph of Confederate soldiers marching in columns.

Photographer J. D. Edwards of New Orleans took this photo of a group of the 9th Mississippi Infantry at Pensacola, Florida, early in the war. From the left the men are James Pegues, Kinloch Falconer, John Fennel, James Cunningham, Thomas W. Falconer, James Simms, and John T. Smith. Kinloch Falconer went on during the war to become Assistant Adjutant General of the Army of Tennessee.

Naoto Tajima of Japan, left, placed third. Owens triumphed in the track and field competition by winning four gold medals in the 100-meter and 200-meter dashes, long jump and 400-meter relay. He was the first athlete to win four gold medals at a single Olympic Games.

Jimmy Stewart, former movie star, is sworn in as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Air Corps by Lt. E.L. Reid, personnel officer of the west coast training center at Moffett Field, California, on January 1, 1941. Stewart was one of Hollywood's most popular actors before he was inducted into the Army in 1941.

In this photo provided by the U.S. Navy, eight miles from Pearl Harbor, shrapnel from a Japanese bomb riddled this car and killed three civilians in the attack of December 7, 1941. Two of the victims can be seen in the front seat. The Navy reported there was no nearby military target.

The terrible damage done to Tokyo by American bombers can be seen in what was once a residential district in the Japanese capital, viewed months later, on September 10, 1945. Only large well constructed buildings remain intact.

Across the Channel, Britain was being struck by continual bombardment by thousands of V-1 and V-2 bombs launched from German-controlled territory. This photo, taken from a fleet street roof-top, shows a V-1 flying bomb "buzzbomb" plunging toward central London. The distinctive sky-line of London's law-courts clearly locates the scene of the incident. Falling on a side road off Drury Lane, this bomb blasted several buildings, including the office of the Daily Herald. The last enemy action of British soil was a V-1 attack that struck Datchworth in Hertfordshire, on March 29 1945.

At 5:12 A.M. on Wednesday, April 18, 1906, an earthquake woke up residents of San Francisco and tossed them from their beds. Little did they know that it was going to be one of the deadliest natural disasters in the history of the United States.

The earthquake itself only lasted about 45 seconds, but it was estimated to have been between 7.8 and 8.3 on the Richter scale, which wasn't invented until 1935. When the earth stopped shaking, few people realized that San Francisco's cataclysm had only just begun. Almost immediately, downed power lines, broken gas lines, and damaged chimneys ignited widespread fires. Worse, the quake had cracked the city's massive clay water mains, leaving firefighters virtually without water.

The Mt. St. Helens eruption was one of the most destructive in modern U.S. History. The eruption column alone was over 80,000 ft high and the mudslide created by the melted snow and ice created a swath of destruction that stretched out for over 50 miles. The entire North face of the mountain literally exploded.

The Mt. St. Helens eruption was one of the most destructive in modern U.S. History. The eruption column alone was over 80,000 ft high and the mudslide created by the melted snow and ice created a swath of destruction that stretched out for over 50 miles. The entire North face of the mountain literally exploded.

The eruption occurred over several days in March starting with a 4.0 earthquake and then the first major eruption on March 27. The side of the mount exploded as groundwater came in contact with magma ejecting rock and volcanic ash into the atmosphere. The force of the successive explosions equaled 25 megatons of force which was 1,600 times as powerful as the nuclear warhead that was dropped on Hiroshima with a blast radius of over 19 miles. The blast traveled at the speed of sound mowing down acres of forest. The heat of the gases were so intense that even trees that escaped the destruction ended up having their bark singed.

The Bombing of Dresden was an attack on the city of Dresden, the capital of the German state of Saxony, that took place in the final months of the Second World War. In four raids between 13 and 15 February 1945, 722 heavy bombers of the British Royal Air Force (RAF) and 527 of the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) dropped more than 3,900 tons of high-explosive bombs and incendiary devices on the city.[1] The resulting firestorm destroyed fifteen square miles (39 square kilometres) of the city centre. At least 22,000, at most 25,000 people were killed. Post-war discussion of whether or not the attacks were justified has led to the bombing becoming one of the moral causes célèbres of the Second World War.[

The Great Tri-State Tornado of Wednesday, March 18, 1925, was the deadliest tornado in U.S. history. Inflicting 695 fatalities, the tornado killed more than twice as many as the second deadliest, the 1840 Great Natchez Tornado. The continuous =219 mile (=352 km) track left by the tornado was the longest ever recorded in the world: the tornado crossed from southeastern Missouri, through southern Illinois, then into southwestern Indiana. Although not officially rated by NOAA, it is recognized by most experts (such as Tom Grazulis) as an F5 tornado, the maximal damage rating issued on the Fujita scale

1923 FA Cup Final

A crowd estimated up to 300,000 began spilling onto the field and mounted policemen were called in to help disperse it, led by George Scorey and his horse Billie. Although there were other horses, Billie's image became iconic. The match eventually started 45 mins late and is still known as the White Horse Final, even though Billie was actually gray.

Rudols Hess, Deputy Führer (1933 - 1941) hopped in a Messerschmitt Bf 110 in March 1941 and flew to Scotland to attempt a negotiated peace with Britain (he did not have Hitler's approval). He was with Hitler during the 1923 " Beer Hall Putsch" and was sentenced to Landsberg Prison with Hitler and the other future Nazi leaders. While there, he helped write and edit Mein Kampf.
