    Photograph of a railroad derailment that took place in Santa Clara on August 28, 1899. Two engines derailed here, although one is under No. 1377 and cannot be seen. These two trains in tandem were pulling a heavy load of passengers returning from Monterey. They derailed at this intersection of broad and narrow gauge railroad tracks when a switchman switched the track to narrow gauge without realizing a broad gauge train was fast approaching. There were a few minor injuries but no one was seriously hurt. A large crowd is milling around examining the wreck. Note that many of the men have their train tickets tucked into their hatbands. In the background is the Santa Clara Depot as well as two trains unable to proceed.

    In the early part of the 20th century, the figure and face of Evelyn Nesbit were everywhere, appearing in mass circulation newspaper and magazine advertisements, on souvenir items, and calendars, making her a cultural celebrity. Her career began in her early teens in Philadelphia and continued in New York, where she posed for a cadre of respected artists of the era, including James Carroll Beckwith, Frederick S. Church, and notably Charles Dana Gibson, who idealized her as a "Gibson Girl." She had the distinction of being an early fashion and artists' model, in an era when both fashion photography (as an advertising medium) and the pin-up (as an art genre) were just beginning their ascendancy.

    Trinity was the code name of the first detonation of a nuclear weapon. It was conducted by the United States Army at 5:29 a.m. on July 16, 1945, as part of the Manhattan Project. The test was conducted in the Jornada del Muerto desert about 35 miles (56 km) southeast of Socorro, New Mexico, on what was then the USAAF Alamogordo Bombing and Gunnery Range, now part of White Sands Missile Range. The only structures originally in the vicinity were the McDonald Ranch House and its ancillary buildings, which scientists used as a laboratory for testing bomb components. A base camp was constructed, and there were 425 people present on the weekend of the test.

    The code name "Trinity" was assigned by J. Robert Oppenheimer, the director of the Los Alamos Laboratory, inspired by the poetry of John Donne. The test was of an implosion-design plutonium device, informally nicknamed "The Gadget", of the same design as the Fat Man bomb later detonated over Nagasaki, Japan, on August 9, 1945. The complexity of the design required a major effort from the Los Alamos Laboratory, and concerns about whether it would work led to a decision to conduct the first nuclear test. The test was planned and directed by Kenneth Bainbridge.

    Fears of a fizzle led to the construction of a steel containment vessel called Jumbo that could contain the plutonium, allowing it to be recovered, but Jumbo was not used.

    A rehearsal was held on May 7, 1945, in which 108 short tons (96 long tons; 98 t) of high explosive spiked with radioactive isotopes were detonated.

    The Gadget's detonation released the explosive energy of about 22 kilotons of TNT (92 TJ). Observers included Vannevar Bush, James Chadwick, James Conant, Thomas Farrell, Enrico Fermi, Richard Feynman, Leslie Groves, Robert Oppenheimer, Geoffrey Taylor, and Richard Tolman.

    The test site was declared a National Historic Landmark district in 1965, and listed on the National Register of Historic Places the following year.

    The Young Patriots wore a rebel Confederate flag on their blue jean jackets and berets, and fought against racism. They participated in demonstrations against police brutality and housing discrimination. In 1971, a portion of the Young Patriots attempted to build a national organization, renamed the Patriot Party, which had no relation to the right-wing group of the same name.

    Way back in 1983, three exotic dancers were charged with violating Pinellas County anti-nudity ordinance which pretty much prohibited topless dancers and strippers from doing their thing. The law also allowed Pinellas County, located in Florida, to regulate any nudity in establishments where alcohol was served.

    “…nudity and service of food and drink did not mix, that it is adverse to the public health, peace and morals of the community,” is an actual quote released from the Pinellas City Council. Well, when three exotic dancers were arrested for allegedly exposing their vaginas to undercover cops, one of the dancers bent over to show the judge that her bikini briefs were too large to show any of her goods.

    The judge was David A. Demers, and because of that “presentation” put forward by the dancer the charges were dismissed.

    This photo then went out to appear in Playboy’s issue of “The Year in Sex.” The judge was glad to learn that you could barely see his name on the nameplate, saying “Whew, I’m glad to hear that!”

    Believe it or not... I'm running out of material to post. When I started it the images were on the grab bag side in each post. Then I started posting more or less by decade going through each year in order but not doing the decades consecutively. THAT... Kinda exhausted all the stuff I could find right now so it's back to being a grab bag with each post.

    Still, glad you are enjoying it Hob.

    “Firing Squad in Iran” was a stunning black and white image of 11 Kurdish men being shot to death in a dusty field in the Iranian province of Kurdistan. Standing a few feet behind and to the right of the riflemen, an Iranian photographer, armed with his Nikon, his savvy and his courage, had recorded the scene. The Pulitzer Prize jury decided this was “probably the single most important photograph of 1979,” writing: “It is not only a picture of enduring and memorable quality but also has the power to shape the viewer’s feeling about a compelling international crisis.”

    Ayatollah Khomeini and his theocracy had been in control of Iran for just a few months. When this close-up of a state execution appeared the next day across the front page of Iran’s biggest newspaper, Ettela’at, the nature of the Islamic Republic could no longer be denied. So the newspaper’s editor, fearing for the photographer’s safety, withheld his name. When UPI distributed the picture around the world, it did the same. The identity of the photographer was not revealed until 2006 when it was announced that it was Jahangir Razmi.

    This is a fantastic thread which I've highly enjoyed from the start. You've done a great job with presenting moments in our history which are sometimes entertaining and sometimes extremely sad. Here's a small contribution on the lighter side.

    I once started a thread here about classic vintage cars, but few others than me contributed to it. When I realised that a thread for gun owners gained way more attraction I gave up on it. Anyway, here's some pics from that old thread.

    Mostly from the 60s, and the theme here is celebs and cars.


    Syd Barrett (RIP), once founder/member of Pink Floyd with a Pontiac -59 convertible. These were probably worth almost nothing in those days, but today we hail these "wide track" Pontiacs as classics.

    Dolly Parton with a huge mid 60:s Cadillac. Anything big suits her fine, right?

    [​IMG]


    Janis Joplin with a Porsche having a typical custom paint in the right psychedelic style. But how did that song really go? "My friends all drive Porsches, I must make a stand. Oh, Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz." Well, whatever.

    [​IMG]


    Ingemar "Ingo" Johansson with a stunning Ford Thunderbird -58. "Ingo" got fame by knocking out Floyd Patterson in the 1959 World Champion heavy weight boxing final. Many people (including my father) still claim today that it's the most amazing Swedish athlete success ever. Over the years I've come to understand the grandness of that event in our little country back then. But then of course, the next time they fought Patterson won..

    Thanks for taking interest in the thread and most of all the added material. I am far from a gear head so while I have a handful of shots of classic cars it's far from what would be here if I had a deep interest or appreciation. Thanks for the great pictures and the informed commentary. Keep 'em coming. Variety of topics is more than welcomed. If you are a sports fan try and drop in some important sports moments as well. I have done my best but sports is not high on my list of interests so moments that might have missed my attention would also be appreciated.

    Charlotte Cooper from the UK participating in the first Olympic games that allowed women in Paris, France in 1900. She would go on to be the first women Gold Medalist for tennis. No special shoes or clothes existed for most olympic events, but definitely not for women during the time period. So all female Olympic athletes competed in normal attire in Tennis and Golf in particular.

    Japanese Picture Brides arrive at Angel Island, CA, US in 1910. The term Picture Bride is derived from when a matchmaker, often a family member, used pictures to assemble a pair to be married. It was mostly done in the first part of the 1900s, and came mainly from Japan, but also Okinawa and Korea. The women were as young as teenagers, but also had no age limit as the man whom they were to marry may have lost a wife or other factors causing them to request a new marriage. The matchmaker and future husband decided the details, with the women rarely having any say in the matter. This has been done for thousands of years well before pictures were invented. For example, European nobility in particular would exchange paintings to see the beauty of a prospective wife, then organize a marriage before meeting them. Other countries do arranged marriages of course, but I am referring to the practice of seeing a painting or picture of the future bride, then making a decision. Between 1905 and 1930, around 50,000 mainly Japanese Picture Brides arrived in the US.

    An Armenian mother sits besides the bodies of her 6 children in 1915. They had been separated from their mom and starved to death during the Armenian Genocide. The fate of the mother is unknown. The father may have already been killed. The Ottoman Turks are believed to have killed 1.5 million Armenians in an ethnic cleansing of the area. They executed many, but preferred to starve the Armenians, often separating families and sometimes using the adults into forced labor while the old, sick, and children starved. Eventually they would kill everyone who were no longer useful. Many fled to Syria and would die on the harsh roads.

    10 Year old Edith Houghton posing for a picture wearing her Philadelphia Bobbies baseball uniform to help promote a girls professional baseball league in 1922. You read that right. The remarkable Houghton not only was on a professional girls baseball team at just 10 years old but she was also their best player. She also joined the Navy, served in WWII, and was the first female scout for MLB.

    Felice Schragenheim and Lilly Wust pose for a few pictures somewhere in Germany in 1944. The pair were lovers, and Schragenheim was actually Jewish, fighting with the Jewish Resistance in Germany. She was unfortunately caught later that year and died during the death march from KZ Auschwitz Birkenau to KZ Bergen-Belsen. Wust was actually the wife of a German officer. She survived the war and would stay married and have 4 children. Their story became both a book and a movie by the same name, Aimée & Jaguar.

    3 Japanese teens show the Wings sign and also show their tickets to a cancelled Wings concert in Toyko, Japan in 1980. The concert was cancelled when Paul McCartney was arrested at the airport after he was found with marijuana in his luggage. The tickets cost around $20 USD at the time. These fans loved Wings, but when the journalist asked them if they also liked The Beatles, the young girls had little to no clue about McCartney's former band.

    People take to the streets reviewing the damage after the Great Fire in Toronto, Canada in 1904. The fire destroyed much of downtown Toronto, claiming over 100 buildings. It was the largest fire ever on record for the city. Luckily, only 1 person died, and the damage of the fire was credited to small ineffective fire departments unable to handle the large blaze. 5,000 people, or 2.5% of the population of Toronto, lost their jobs. The result at least forced city officials to put money into the fire department, expanding it greatly and making the firefighters more effective, which ensured there was not a repeat of such damage.

    Herders put elephants in a pen during the Ayutthaya Wild Elephant Collection in Thailand in 1904. The government was able to capture a few thousand elephants and trained them and put them to use for projects, eventually moving some into sanctuaries as well.

    Female mechanics work on fixing a bus engine in London, England in 1917. Much of the day to day workforce became women in the UK during WWI, and many made the same call in WWII. They did everything from run public transport, to public jobs, to construction employees, and almost every kind of factory worker. This actually was instrumental in helping Womens' Rights Movements in the UK to get them the vote, which they did in 1918. Lawmakers knew they relied far too heavily on female labor, forcing them to finally cave in after over 3 decades of protests for Womens' rights.

    State Troopers keep a crowd in check in Salisbury, Maryland, US in 1933. The troopers were sent by Gov. Albert Ritchie to arrest suspects in a lynching of a black man that occurred in the previous month. The Lynching of blacks without due process in the area had risen in previous years, and the Governor intended to put a stop to it. However, the troopers were met by large crowds of white people who actually threatened the troopers, throwing rocks and some were said to be armed with clubs and bats. After initial clashes, the troopers used tear gas to repulse them.

    Inmates cheer during a negotiating session during the Attica Prison Uprising in New York State, US in 1971. For 4 days the prisoners controlled the facility, after capturing numerous officers and holding them hostage. Against the policy of the state, negotiations were held instead of an immediate retake of the prison. Too many leaders existed inside the prison to have proper negotiations. Then 1 of the guards died from injuries suffered during the uprising after being released by the prisoners. This made all the prisoners potential accomplices to murder, and negotiations broke down. Many of the demands just asked for better treatment, but the leaders of the uprising wanted assurances from the Governor in person. Instead, an armed retake of the prison commenced, killing 33 prisoners and 10 more correctional officers. Major state prisons and policies did reform after this uprising around the country to avoid a repeat.

    The famous Sydney Opera House under construction in Sydney, Australia in 1966. The project started in 1959, and wasn't fully completed for 14 years until 1973. The project ran so far over its budget and had such complications during all that time, that it overall ended up costing around $102 million, or after being adjusted for inflation, almost $1 billion today.

    Portuguese soldiers read updates in the paper during the Carnation Revolution of 1974. This was a military coup that went over pretty peacefully, and soldiers would decorate themselves and their weapons with carnations to show solidarity with the people. The Carnation Revolution (Portuguese: Revolução dos Cravos), also referred to as the 25th of April (Portuguese: vinte e cinco de Abril), was initially a military coup in Lisbon, Portugal, on 25 April 1974 which overthrew the authoritarian regime of the Estado Novo.[1] The revolution started as a military coup organised by the Armed Forces Movement (Portuguese: Movimento das Forças Armadas, MFA) composed of military officers who opposed the regime, but the movement was soon coupled with an unanticipated and popular campaign of civil resistance. This movement would lead to the fall of the Estado Novo and the withdrawal of Portugal from its African colonies.

    The name "Carnation Revolution" comes from the fact that almost no shots were fired and that when the population took to the streets to celebrate the end of the dictatorship and war in the colonies, carnations were put into the muzzles of rifles and on the uniforms of the army men by Celeste Caeiro.[2] In Portugal, 25 April is a national holiday, known as Freedom Day (Portuguese: Dia da Liberdade), to celebrate the event.

    People protesting against any form of nuclear power or weapons after the Three Mile Island accident in Pennsylvania, US in 1979. An accident at the Nuclear Power Plant caused a small release of radiation. The government was unaware of the extent of the leak at first, and did not evacuate people. Up to 500,000 people were close enough to be heavily affected had it been worse, but the government did not know the magnitude of the radiation released within the first 48 hours, and did hardly anything while determining the extent of the incident. This lack of action and understanding of a possible nuclear disaster caused fear and protests for much of the year against anything nuclear. Those fears were realize with the Chernobyl disaster in Ukraine 7 years later.

    British SAS soldiers (a highly trained group of special forces) move into position for the siege on the Iranian Embassy in London, England in 1980. After 6 days of talks, the gunmen killed a hostage. Fearful of more executions, Margaret Thatcher ordered the SAS to storm the Embassy by force. In the 17 minute gun battle, all but 1 of the remaining hostages were saved and 5 of the 6 gunmen were killed, the 6th being captured and prosecuted.

    This is a picture of Bosniaks (Muslim Bosnians) at the Omarska concentration camp run by the Serbians during the Bosnian War in Bosnia in 1992. It was basically a concentration camp being disguised as a prisoner camp.

    [​IMG]


    The international community forced the Serbians to allow a BBC news crew onto the site to examine if human rights violations were occurring. What they found were people who suffered from malnutrition and often starving nearly to death. They also were specifically ethnic prisoners, all Muslims, with many seemingly showing no signs of being in any military or militia. They also found the guards would torture the prisoners often. Inmate stories and records would show that the Bosniaks (Bosnian Muslims) were interned here, split up based on sex, with many of the women being raped, and thousands being shot and killed at this concentration camp. This was worldwide headlines on most papers and stations when it was released. A doctor on site also smuggled more incriminating photos of what happened at this site to help expose it.
