Rare Historical Photos from Around the World

You all know by now that I am a fan of history and, if you don’t know that… why haven’t you been paying attention?  I feel like I mean nothing to you!

Even if you are inattentive and don’t really deserve my affections, you should know that the part of history that fascinates me the most are the alternative points of view to it… those photos and descriptions that tell us what it was like to be there and, perhaps, surprise us with something we didn’t know and haven’t seen.

Here they are:

Elvis in the Army.
