Photography started in 1816 with the first picture being successfully produced. We now see pictures constantly throughout the day from phones, social media, and on our computers, but that was not always the case. This collection of rarely seen photographs shows many historical events taking place that have only been recorded in a few writings and images. Also shown are some chilling and interesting moments, many of which show world leaders in different contexts than their normal image.
Death Row Roller Coaster
This picture is from 1958 and shows a death row inmate testing a roller coaster at an amusement park to determine if it is safe. This did not end well for the inmate and is definitely not a practice that would be continued today.
