    22 Amazing Vintage Photographs That Capture Everyday Life in the 1940s by Weegee

    Weegee, born Usher Fellig on June 12, 1899 in the town of Lemburg (now in Ukraine), first worked as a photographer at age fourteen, three years after his family immigrated to the United States, where his first name was changed to the more American-sounding Arthur.

    Self-taught, he held many other photography-related jobs before gaining regular employment at a photography studio in lower Manhattan in 1918. This job led him to others at a variety of newspapers until, in 1935, he became a freelance news photographer. He centered his practice around police headquarters and in 1938 obtained permission to install a police radio in his car. This allowed him to take the first and most sensational photographs of news events and offer them for sale to publications such as the Herald-Tribune, Daily News, Post, the Sun, and PM Weekly, among others.

    During the 1940s, Weegee's photographs appeared outside the mainstream press and met success there as well. New York's Photo League held an exhibition of his work in 1941, and the Museum of Modern Art began collecting his work and exhibited it in 1943. Weegee published his photographs in several books, including Naked City (1945), Weegee's People (1946), and Naked Hollywood (1953). After moving to Hollywood in 1947, he devoted most of his energy to making 16-millimeter films and photographs for his "Distortions" series, a project that resulted in experimental portraits of celebrities and political figures.

    Weegee's photographic oeuvre is unusual in that it was successful in the popular media and respected by the fine-art community during his lifetime. His photographs' ability to navigate between these two realms comes from the strong emotional connection forged between the viewer and the characters in his photographs, as well as from Weegee's skill at choosing the most telling and significant moments of the events he photographed.

    25 Amazing Vintage Photographs from Inside the Lewis Cycle and Motor Works Factory in Adelaide from the Early 20th Century

    In 1900, Lewis Cycle Works made the leap from bicycles to motor driven vehicles with the creation of the Lewis motor car. Built in-house, the company soon realized that there would be no profit in hand-built cars, when they could be more easily and cheaply imported from other countries. The solution was to use their expertise in producing bicycles to start producing motorcycles. Within a year, they had already unveiled their first prototype. This first "motorcycle" was nothing more than a bicycle fitted with a Minerva clip-on motor, but it was a step in the right direction.

    By 1903, the motorcycle design had been settled upon and production began. The motorcycles were still powered by a Minerva clip-on engine, but used a new side valve configuration which produced 2 horsepower. Engine size and power increased slowly for the next couple years, but in 1905, Lewis introduced a water cooled model which featured a "radiator" mounted in front of the gas tank. It also had three brakes, rim brakes front and rear operated by hand levers and a rear drum brake operated by a foot pedal. The motor was a vertical single, which produced 2 1/2 horsepower.

    The photographs below were taken between 1904 and 1906 at the Lewis Cycle and Motor Works factory, during a time of rapid development for the Lewis motorcycle. Here you can see how the bicycle evolved into a motorcycle and how much work went into producing motorcycles at the turn of the century.

    24 Incredible Mugshots of Women Criminals from the 1920s

    These mugshots show women criminals from the 1920s. They mostly came from Australia and New Zealand.

    1. Ruth Young (1923. Aged: 43).

    [​IMG]

    Ruth Young had a problem with alcohol and was often homeless. She had multiple convictions for drunkenness, vagrancy and petty theft.


    2. Ruth Carruthers (1926. Aged: 28).

    [​IMG]

    Convicted of false pretenses. Ruth Carruthers went on a criminal spree in 1926, using the art of persuasion to obtain goods and money from hapless shopkeepers. She was eventually convicted on four charges of false pretenses and sentenced to six months at Long Bay.


    3. Philomena Mary Best (1927. Aged: 33).

    [​IMG]

    Philomena Best stole silk and other goods valued at over 36 pounds (about $2000 today) from a Bourke shopkeeper in north-western New South Wales. She was convicted and sentenced to 12 months with light labor.


    4. Pearl McFadden (1928. Aged: 18).

    [​IMG]

    Pearl McFadden may have been supporting herself by working as a prostitute. Many sex workers were charged with vagrancy and having insufficient means of support, as it was a relatively easy charge to prove. McFadden was sentenced to six months with hard labor.


    5. Myrtle Lee (1927. Aged: 35).

    [​IMG]

    Myrtle Lee, described in the media as 'a well-dressed woman', stabbed Mary Moon twice at the residence of a Chinese man in Alexandria. The press emphasized the racial nature of the attack with a headline 'White and Yellow'. Lee was sentenced to six months gaol.
    6. May Smith (1929. Aged: 49).

    [​IMG]

    May Smith, alias 'Botany May', was an infamous drug dealer. She once chased policewoman Lillian Armfield with a red-hot iron to avoid arrest. Smith was sentenced to 10 months with hard labor.

    [​IMG]

    Matilda 'Tilly' Devine used a razor to slash a man's face in a barber's shop and was sentenced to two years gaol. She was Sydney's best-known brothel madam and her public quarrels with sly-grog queen Kate Leigh provided the media with an abundance of material.


    9. Mary Rubina Brownlee (1923. Aged: 64).

    [​IMG]

    Convicted of unlawfully using an instrument to procure a miscarriage. Mary Brownlee was a backyard abortionist who was caught during an extensive police investigation. She was sentenced to 12 months light labor, but her male accomplice was acquitted.


    10. Tasmanian Lillian Sproule (1928. Aged: 50).

    [​IMG]

    Became involved in Sydney’s cocaine trade. She was labeled a 'parasite in skirts' by the newspapers and had multiple convictions relating to drug dealing. She was sentenced to six months in prison.


    11. Kathleen Ward (1925. Aged: 21).

    14. Evelyn Courtney (1920. Aged: 19).

    [​IMG]

    Stole a remarkable array of items, ranging from an umbrella to Irish linen napkins. She was a suspect in at least seven different robberies during 1920.


    15. Eugenia Falleni (1920. Aged: 43).

    [​IMG]

    Eugenia Falleni spent most of her life masquerading as a man (Harry Crawford). In 1913 Falleni married a widow, Annie Birkett, whom she later murdered. Convicted of murder in 1928, the case whipped the public into a frenzy as they clamored for details of the 'man-woman' murderer.


    16. Ettie Sultana (1922. Aged: 37).

    [​IMG]

    Worked in northern New South Wales and in the Queensland cities of Brisbane and Toowoomba for most of her career. She had multiple convictions for prostitution, theft, drunkenness, swearing and vagrancy. She was sentenced to six months with hard labor.


    17. mily Gertrude Hemsworth (1925. Aged: 24).

    20. Dorothy Mort (1921. Aged: 32).

    [​IMG]

    Convicted of murder. Mrs. Dorothy Mort was having an affair with dashing young doctor Claude Tozer. On 21 December 1920, Tozer visited her home with the intention of breaking off the relationship. Mort shot him dead before she attempted suicide.

    [​IMG]

    Teenager Annie Gunderson was charged with stealing a fur coat from a Sydney department store called Winn's Limited, in 1922. Police records do not indicate whether the fur she is wearing is the stolen item.

    [​IMG]

    Was convicted of bigamy and theft. By the age of 24 she had amassed an impressive number of aliases and at least two husbands. She was described by police as 'rather good looking'.

    The Isolator: This Insane Anti-Distraction Helmet From 1925 Would Fit Into Any Modern Open Office

    Maybe you blame your smartphone or your open office for the fact that you can’t concentrate at work. But distraction isn’t exactly a new problem: In the 1920s, Hugo Gernsback published a design for a creepy-looking helmet that blocks out sound and vision so someone can focus on their work. As a writer, editor and inventor, he had a lot to do and no time for distractions. And yet, they lurked everywhere he looked. So, he created something he called “The Isolator”.

    [​IMG]

    A full-face helmet made from solid wood, Gernsback’s invention claimed to cut out 95 per cent of any noise bothering the wearer. Another handy feature was the minimal vision it allowed. A small piece of glass granted the person wearing it sight, but even that was painted black, with only a thin segment scraped clear to allow you to see paper in front of them.

    The good (and maybe bad) of being both an inventor and publisher, is no one can stop you publishing images of your own ridiculous inventions. This contraption was featured in Gernsback’s own magazine, Science and Invention, in 1925.

    [​IMG]

    Later, the inventor added an oxygen tank when it was found wearers were getting sleepy inside the quiet, dark and – as it turns out – carbon-dioxide-filled helmet.

    [​IMG]

    Laugh all you want, but it seems as though the Isolator may have actually worked – at least for Gernsback. His editing and writing output was so vast that some now dub him the Father of Science Fiction.

    Rock Star Cars – 23 Awesome Pictures of Music Stars With Their Cool Motors

    Moneyed musicians and expensive cars go together like turntables and vinyl. Some, such as Pete Townshend of the Who, claim to have spent five years saving up for their dream machine — a Mercedes S 600 Pullman, in Townshend’s case...

    1. Freddie Mercury - Studebaker Champion

    [​IMG]
    Freddie gets first prize in the Rock Stars Cars' product placement competition as he makes himself comfortable on this 1950 Studebaker Champion.

    2. George Harrison - Aston Martin DB5

    [​IMG]
    George Harrison’s lust for speed began in childhood when he would doodle guitars and cars in class; he was able to slake his lifelong passion for driving with a variety of exotic wheels on the road and occasionally on the track.

    3. Janis Joplin - Porsche 365

    [​IMG]
    Janis Joplin’s Porsche 365 is on display in all its garish 60s glory, but you can’t blame poor Janis – her roadie, Dave Roberts, reportedly had the car painted “to resemble a pile of Jimi Hendrix’s vomit.” It was stolen a year after the paint job, painted grey, recovered, restored and is currently valued at $400,000.

    4. Jeff Beck - Ford Deuce Coupe

    [​IMG]
    Jeff Beck is an avid collector of vehicles. His favorites are the classic Deuce Coupes and 1932 Ford Roadsters. He also has a 1932 three-window Ford coupe, which he copied from the car used in the classic movie called American Graffiti. He set out to create an exact replica after losing out in an auction to buy the original one. He still also has the 1963 split-window Corvette Stingray that he bought during the heydays of The Yardbirds.

    5. Miles Davis - Lamborghini Miura

    [​IMG]
    Miles Davis rolled in a Lamborghini Miura and famously broke both his ankles while totaling it in 1972. You can’t keep a jazz legend down, though, and when Davis was released from the hospital after a lengthy stay, one of the first orders of business was to buy another Lambo.

    6. Johnny Cash - Cadillac ('49 - '70)

    [​IMG]
    This Frankenstein's monster of a Cadillac was built to promote Johnny Cash's song "One Piece at a Time." The song's about an assembly-line worker who steals a Cadillac by taking one piece at a time home in his lunchbox. Nashville mechanic Bruce Fitzpatrick (far right) constructed the car from Cadillac parts, using the song as a manual.

    7. Bryan Ferry - Messerschmitt KR200

    [​IMG]
    A young Mr Ferry looked suitably louche in his Messerschmitt KR200. A hard one to carry off and maybe not the safest for modern roads but it’s a great choice of wheels and has bags of charm.

    8. Dave Clark - Jaguar E-Type

    [​IMG]
    The E-Type was the car of choice for 60s hit parade regulars The Dave Clark Five, or at least it was for Dave.

    9. Elvis Presley - Cadillac Eldorado Seville

    [​IMG]
    He's just popped into town to get his hair cut at Jim's Barber Shop, Memphis, and a cop appears to write him out a ticket for his new white Cadillac. It's unknown whether he's tucking a bribe into the officer's pocket or just crossing his fingers.

    10. Sonny and Cher - Mustangs

    [​IMG]
    Created to reflect the personalities of husband and wife singing duo Sonny Bono and Cher, this pair of 1966 Mustangs came in two different sizes. As a publicity stunt, it must have been an expensive one.

    11. Bruce Springsteen - Chevrolet Corvette

    [​IMG]
    Acquired on the back of a ton of sales for his 'Born to Run' album in 1975, Burce's 1960 Chevrolet Corvette is parked on Colonial Avenue, Haddonfield, New Jersey.

    12. Keith Richards - Ferrari Dino 246

    [​IMG]
    This is, of course, what all of Keith Moon's cars ended up looking like, but bizarrely it wasn't Keith who totalled his Ferrari Dino just a few weeks after he bought it. He lent it to a couple of bikers at his local pub, The Golden Grove in Chertsey, to take it for a spin, only for them to crash it into a roadworks ditch.

    13. Morrissey - Fiat 500

    [​IMG]
    His Fiat 500 is the slightly larger "estate" model known as the 'Giardiniera', produced between 1960 and 1975 (and possibly also the name of Mozza's favourite pizza).

    14. Bill Wyman - Citroen SM

    [​IMG]
    It looks more suited to a Jetson than a rock star, but two Rolling Stones have purchased Citroen SMs. Although he doesn’t drive, drummer Charlie Watts had one added to his collection and former bass player Bill Wyman (pictured) loves its retro-futurist feel.

    15. Dolly Parton - Cadillac De Villa

    [​IMG]
    A smouldering Dolly Parton packs a few frocks and a trunk full of guitars ready for another tour. Her 1997 Cadillac d'Elegance was a favourite and is now on display, complete with autographed arm rests, at the Hollywood Star Cars Museum.

    16. Elton John - Jaguar E-Type

    [​IMG]
    In the drive of his home in Old Windsor, Elton John creates his very own traffic jam. His Jaguar E-type gets pole position, with its personalised number plate representing 'OK Elton'.

    17. Alan Whitehead - Jaguar E-Type

    [​IMG]
    A 22-year-old Alan Whitehead, the former drummer for Marmalade, is seen here with his E Type 2+2 in 1967.

    18. Ginger Baker - Jensen FF

    [​IMG]
    Ginger Baker, the drummer for the rock band Cream, is presented with the keys to his new Jensen FF in 1969. The Jensen FF, launched in 1966, is the world’s first production four-wheel drive car with anti-skid brakes.

    19. Keith Moon - AC 428

    [​IMG]
    Keith Moon showing off his hot rod, his AC 428 and his infamous hovercraft.

    20. Suzi Quatro - Austin Ruby

    [​IMG]
    Suzi Quatro opens the Custom Car Festival in 1982 as she rides in a V8 Supercharged Austin Ruby.

    21. Dave Clark - Jaguar E-Type

    [​IMG]
    Dave Clark, of The Dave Clark Five, is seen here with his white E Type on the set of "Catch Us If You Can" in 1965.

    22. Tony Iommi - Jaguar E-Type

    [​IMG]
    Tony Iommi also had 3 E Types and found them to be an exhilarating drive.

    23. Marky Ramone - 1965 Chrysler Imperial

    [​IMG]
    Marky Ramone, formerly of the band the Ramones, is seen with the 1965 Chrysler Imperial "Green Hornet" from the U.S. TV series. Ramone restored the car himself.

    Vintage Photos of American Soldiers Courting English Girls During World War II

    During World War II, the Americans and the British were not only allies in war. They were allies in love.

    In the spring of 1944, with D-Day just weeks away, LIFE photographer Ralph Morse strolled through London’s Hyde Park capturing the phenomenon that was the love between American soldiers and young English women.


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Crowds at Hyde Park Corner stroll aimlessly into park on long spring evenings. This is favorite spot for American boys to meet their English girls. Then most of the couples row on the Serpentine or watch nearby softball games.

    [​IMG]

    These Were 18 Women You Fell In Love With During the 1960s

    In your formative years, they were the women on your wall. They caught your eye and dropped your jaw. Sure, the girl you took to the dance or stole your first kiss from was special, but these ladies became part of your dreams. They played characters you could relate to or fell in love with and sang songs you swore were about you. And they were drop-dead gorgeous, of course.

    Was it love? Of course it was. It was the 1960s and these were the women you fell in love with.

    1. Raquel Welch

    [​IMG]

    Raquel Welch got our attention in 1966 when she starred in Fantastic Voyage, but it was that doe-skin bikini in One Million Years B.C. that cemented herself as one of America’s most beloved sex symbols.


    2. Marianne Faithfull

    [​IMG]

    Marianne Faithfull was the kind of girl you could take home to mom and dad. Except for the drugs. And Mick Jagger. Mom and dad hated Jagger.

    OK, so you couldn’t take Marianne Faithfull home to the family, but she was the girl you wanted to escape with and live the swinging, care-free lifestyle you dreamed about.


    3. Edie Sedgwick

    [​IMG]

    Heiress, socialite, actress, and fashion model. That was Edie Sedgwick. She was the “It Girl” we couldn’t get enough of. Except for Bob Dylan.


    4. Twiggy

    [​IMG]

    Twiggy made androgyny sexy, crushing the standards we previously had for beauty. Paul McCartney also wrote two songs for her (“Back in the U.S.S.R.” and “Gotta Sing, Gotta Dance”), intended for projects that never happened.


    5. Jane Birkin

    [​IMG]

    Birkin’s provocative role in Blow-Up helped her become a cultural icon during the 1960s. Birkin put it all out there for everyone to see posing for erotic magazines and baring all on-screen.


    6. Tina Turner

    [​IMG]

    Let’s be honest: it may have been Ike and Tina, but it was all Tina. Turner empowered herself with an attitude and voice that we couldn’t help but fall in love with.


    7. Ursula Andress

    [​IMG]

    Andress, Ursula Andress. The first, and possibly greatest, Bond girl. Andress walking out of the Caribbean Sea in a white bikini with a large knife on her hip will forever be burned into our memory.


    8. Tina Louise

    [​IMG]

    Louise starred as the the movie star, Ginger Grant on Gilligan’s Island and sparked one of the greatest debates of all time.


    9. Dawn Wells

    [​IMG]

    The other half of the great Gilligan’s Island debate, Wells played Mary Ann, the farm girl next door.


    10. Diana Rigg

    [​IMG]

    Diana Rigg was a beautiful bad ass. She played Emma Peel, a spy on The Avengers who was a certified genius and martial arts expert.


    11. Barbara Eden

    [​IMG]

    Who knew a 2,000-year-old genie could look so good. Eden starred as the title character on I Dream of Jeannie and made us all wish for a night home in front of the TV on Saturday night.


    12. Elizabeth Montgomery

    [​IMG]

    What’s the deal with women who possess some form of mystical powers? Montogomery starred as Samantha Stephens on Bewitched and had us all hoping for a spell that could position us as the only Darrin in her life.


    13. Natalie Wood

    [​IMG]

    Before she was 25, Wood had already received three Academy Award nominations, two of them for Splendor in the Grass (1961) and Love with the Proper Stranger (1963).


    14. Honor Blackman

    [​IMG]

    If anyone can challenge Andress as the greatest Bond girl of all time, it’s Blackman, playing Pussy Galore in Goldfinger.


    15. Ann-Margret

    [​IMG]

    Before IKEA made it’s way to our shores with absurd shopping rules and meatballs, their finest export was Ann-Margret. The 1960s were good to her (and us!), with starring roles in Bye Bye Birdie (1963), Viva Las Vegas (1964), and The Cincinnati Kid (1965).

    In a career that’s spanned more than 50 years, she has won five Golden Globe Awards while being nominated for two Academy Awards, two Grammy Awards, a Screen Actors Guild Award, and SIX Emmy Awards.


    16. Lola Falana

    [​IMG]

    Known as “The Black Venus,” Falana’s popularity soared thanks to her roles in spaghetti Westerns. She also posed for Playboy.


    17. Marlo Thomas

    [​IMG]

    Thomas was THAT GIRL. Literally and figuratively: she starred as Ann Marie on the show That Girl from 1966-1970, a character whose scatter-brain personality led her to some compromising positions. And Thomas looked great the entire time.


    18. Donna Douglas

    [​IMG]

    The best part of The Beverly Hillbillies was Elly Mae, the Tomboy you played in the dirt with as a kid and eventually fell in love with when you got older.

    Everyday Life of Denmark During the 1930s and 1940s Through Sven Türck's Lens

    Sven Türck (1897 - 1954) was a Danish photographer who had a versatile repertoire, and primarily worked in the 1930s and 1940s. He made more than 70,000 recordings of daily life, national symbols, events, businesses and people, almost all of them at the Royal Library.

    Türck's pictures give us a photographic impression of Danish society during the 1930s and 1940s. The cities have grown and rural life is already distant to many people. Clerks and sales women are biking through the streets or enjoying leisure time on the beach...

    39 Amazing Vintage Portraits of Mexicans in the 1860s

    Here's a photo album of Mexican occupationals made by the studio "Cruces y Campa" in the 1860s. The album contains portraits of occupations, vendors and marketeers.

    Antíoco Cruces and Luis Campa made a brilliant career as photographers in Mexico City from between the years of 1862 and 1877. Their studio called Art Photography was located near the Metropolitan Cathedral. They were very successful in the year 1872 marketing thousands of business cards with the portrait of President Benito Juarez, who had died in July.

    Their postcards were popularly known as "Business Cards" and their sales was very popular both in Mexico and in Europe. These portraits are approximately 7 cm high by 5 cm wide, and were stuck in rigid boards that measured 10 cm by 6 cm. They succeeded in selling themselves with great success as a novelty of the time.

    I flew home on Friday afternoon. We were diverted over Niagara Falls before we landed. I was on the right side of the airplane in a window seat, and managed to snap a few photos of my old hometown.

    Prostitution during the Vietnam War: 30 Color Candid Snapshots Capture Vietnamese Bar Girls from between the Late 1960s and Early 1970s

    During the Vietnam War, a whole sex industry sprung up around American servicemembers. Prostitutes would congregate at bars where service members would frequent, and offer their services. Sometimes, the prostitutes and women who had intercourse would get pregnant. The resulting Amerasian children, of whom there were estimated to be about 50,000, were ostracized and given the derisive name bui doi ("dirt of life"). Often, these children were themselves forced into prostitution.

    During the war, hooch maids would often clean up after the soldiers in their dwellings. One soldier described the maids as being, "...good Catholics who might flirt with you but would never date an American soldier." At the same time it was not unheard of for maids to "keep the plumbing clean" for soldiers in order to earn some extra income.

    Rare and Amazing Color Photographs Capture Germany After The War, from the 1950s and 1960s

    It was no more than eight years after the surrender of the Nazi government when Josef Heinrich Darchinger set out on his photographic journey through the West of a divided Germany. The bombs of World War II had reduced the country’s major cities to deserts of rubble. Yet his pictures show scarcely any signs of the downfall of a civilization. Not that the photographer was manipulating the evidence: he simply recorded what he saw.

    The photographs portray a country caught between the opposite poles of technological modernism and cultural restoration, between affluence and penury, between German Gemütlichkeit and the constant threat of the Cold War. They show the winners and losers of the "economic miracle," people from all social classes, at home, at work, in their very limited free time and as consumers. But they also show a country that looks, in retrospect, like a film from the middle of the last century. Of his color photographs, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung wrote, "they are exceptional contemporary documents indicating how swiftly the grayness of everyday life became infused with color again."
