1. The last photo of the Titanic, 1912

The Titanic was considered unsicable, but unfortunately we now know how much the engineers were wrong. This photo shows the colossus off the coast of Queenstown, Ireland. The last passengers were taken on board here on April 11th before heading for the United States. Unfortunately, most of the passengers would never arrive there, because only four days later, on April 15, the ship collided with an iceberg and sank. Thus, this picture is considered to be the last that was ever made by the huge ship.

2. Elvis Presley in the Army, 1959

Everyone knows him as the King of Rock, but in this picture you can see Elvis Presley as Private 53310761. From 1958 to 1960 he served in the American Army and was even transferred to Germany for some time as part of NATO. Elvis went through a lot in the army, for example his mother died shortly after he started. In Germany he met his future wife Priscilla Beaulieu at a party in Bad Nauheim.

3. Woman with a stroller, 1938

This doesn't look like a classic stroller, it looks more like an oven. During this time war was about to break out and the invention was intended to protect children from a gas bomb attack. This English mother did not want to risk her child's life walking and put it in it after putting a gas mask on herself. The picture is reminiscent of a sad and dangerous time, which was characterized by fear and tension.
