Just one. Will probably do some more in a couple of days.

Chris Cornell playing the last ever Soundgarden gig in Detroit. A couple of hours later, he committed suicide in his hotel room:

He had many demons did Chris Cornell. He was on everything drug-wise from his early teen years. It was only a matter of time.

RIP though.

That Sarajevo one is rough. Terrible stuff.

I knew a guy who grew up in Sarajevo around that time. He would of been about 15 or 16 in 1994. He told me about the snipers in the streets and recounted how he and his buddies would go up onto the roof of tower blocks at night to drink and party as bombs from aircraft would go off in the near distance. He said it was a crazy spectacle.

Nice guy, but of a mad existence for him as a teenager though.

That whole serb siege of Sarajevo was fucking disgusting. International forces should of steamrolled the cunts in double quick time.

Stalin in the Kremlin on June 22nd, 1941, after a meeting where he was told that it was confirmed that the Nazi military had entered Russian territory and were coming for Moscow. The photographer was ordered to destroy the picture, as it was deemed unflattering to Stalin. Hours after this was taken, Stalin went to a country cabin, went on a three day alcoholic bender and was unavailable to Russian military command.


This is widely believed to be the last ever photo taken of a Barbary Lion (a species now extinct). The picture was taken from on board a Casablanca-Dacar flight in 1925. Barbary Lions were among the largest lions ever, and were famously used for entertainment/fights in Gladiator Arenas.


Tribal leader forced to sell off his tribes land, 1948
“In 1947, the 80th Congress approved PL 296 which appropriated funds for “Flood Control, General.” A contract was drawn up in 1948 for approval by the Three Affiliated Tribes. Indians feared that if they failed to consent to outlined terms, they would receive less adequate compensation in the future. In tears. Council Chairman George Gillette “consented” to the coercive piece of legislation. “The truth is, as everyone knows,” he said, “our Treaty of Fort Laramie…and our constitution are being torn to shreds by this contract”. By 1949, provisions for compensation were passed by the Senate and the House and signed into law by the president. In 1950, the tribes voted 525 out of 991 adults to accept the provisions of the act. By 1951, construction was underway and relocation procedures undertaken. The 1951 population included 356 families on 583,000 acres of reservation. Three hundred families were forced to relocate from more than 153,000 acres of flooded lands. The US government believed that many families would choose to permanently move to urban areas under federal job training programs; however, cultural forces inhibited migration to the extent that many Indians viewed even the new reservation lands as “foreign” and inhospitable. Those who did migrate returned in much greater numbers-than anticipated.”



Weapons taken from Bonnie and Clyde's car after both were killed in a police ambush, 1934:



Abraham Lincoln's deathbed at Peterson House, shortly after his body was removed. April 1865.


You know how people had respect for each other back in the day? And how gangs and such weren't so prevalent, or so violent? Here's a message from Bridgeport Police to the Tuff Mugs gang, mid-1930s:


In 1969, black people were still not allowed to swim with whites. Mr Rogers didn't appreciate that, and decided to invite Officer Clemmons onto his TV show so that they could cool their feet together and show the children that a black man and a white man sharing a pool - even a small one - was no big deal:



And one a little less intense to finish. But still quite fascinating. To me, anyway. :lol:

The Esst River looks like it has rapids in that picture. It's nothing like that now.
