These 18 Incredibly Rare Historical Photos Will Leave You Speechless

A picture is worth a thousand words, but not all pictures are created equal.  We should warn our readers that some of these pictures may upset them, while others may fill them with joy.

But that’s precisely because these images reflect some of the best and worst parts of the human experience and world events.

Some of these photographs may mean more to some of our readers than to others.

But hopefully, they will remind us all that the world can always use a little bit more love, tolerance, compassion and understanding.

Attention history teachers everywhere: If you want to wake those sleeping “kids”, show them these 18 rare photos from the past.

Yes, they could get a thousand words from the textbook, but wouldn’t you rather engage them with these historical photos?
