California Lumberjacks Felling Giant Redwoods, 1915

Mickey & Minnie Costumes, Disneyland, 1930s

In our opinion, these original costumes of Disney icons Mickey and Minnie Mouse are terrifying! The kid in the picture
certainly seems to think so. We’re not entirely sure whose idea it was to give Mickey and Minnie a serious makeover,
but whoever it was deserved a medal – the next version was far closer to how we’ve now become accustomed to seeing them
and the millions of kids who visit the park each year are the happier for it!

The Last Photo of All Four Beatles Together

Everyone has their own particular favorite band or musician, but speaking in general terms, The Beatles are often
regarded as the greatest band of all time – they are certainly one of the most popular. When the four boys from
Liverpool, England decided to call it a day, people around the world were absolutely devastated. Taken August 22nd,
1969, this is the last photo of ‘the fab four’ together. Today, they remain as popular as ever and have influenced
countless other bands.

Construction seems to be moving at an alarming rate, and it seems that sooner rather than later, there won’t be any
space left in the world; with big corporations looking to build more and more hotels, roads and other infrastructures,
there’s something quite inspiring about individuals taking a stand – this picture was possible because an elderly
Chinese couple refused to sign an agreement allowing their house to be demolished for a new road. What a strange and
surreal sight!

Traffic Chaos On The First Morning After Sweden Changed Driving Lane, 1967

Different countries drive on different sides of the road, and it can often be difficult to pick things up if you find
yourself having to drive in a foreign country; how well you adapt is obviously hugely dependent on how good a driver
you are in the first place. Well, regardless of how good any of these drivers were beforehand, Sweden plunged into
chaos the first morning after they decided to switch from driving on the left to the right.

Madonna, Sting and Tupac Hanging Out

When you get three of the biggest music stars in history gathered around the very same table, one can only imagine what
they were talking about – whatever it was, we bet it was super cool! Of course, this is none other than Madonna, Sting
and hip-hop legend Tupac, you know, just casually hanging out. We would love to have been a fly on the wall during this
night and we bet the three superstars were talking until the early hours.

Einstein’s Office on the Day He Died, April 18th 1955

At first glance, this looks like your typical – albeit slightly messy! – office. But then we learn who its occupant was
and the poignancy of the scene is clear: this is Albert Einstein’s office on the day he died, April 18th, 1955.
Fittingly, there are equations scribbled on the board, while the chaos on his desk is befitting of a man who was
notoriously messy. There’s a misconception that to do good work, one must keep a tidy workplace; Einstein proved
otherwise!
