    In 1952 the first ever Miss USA Pageant and Miss Universe Pageant were held at the same time in Long Beach, California. Life Magazine chronicled the event and snapped pictures of the contestants before both pageants proceeded.

    The hardworking men that put up the iconic Empire State Building in NYC from 1930-1931. Amazingly the construction from start to finish took only year and 45 days! Amazing what one million man hours in total can accomplish huh?

    Various "No Man's Land" between the opposing sides' trenches during WWI in Europe. Until even today many areas are "no go zones" due to the amount of mines and unexploded munitions. During the war the land was a hellscape. Roads, woods, farms & villages were unrecognisable.

    Only a sea of mud remained, poisoned by lead, mercury, chlorine, arsenic, acids, & the remains of the humans & animals that had died there.
