That shot of Louis and his wife (and the Sphinx) gets me (full photo, and 100 more, below).

Wow alert (also the before-after of Hiroshima wowed me, and the photo of the falling bombs, and the colorized photo of Custer…):

    Amazing – my fave was def Twain in Tesla's lab. A bit weird how few women are pictured, like they weren't really a part of history at all.

    The colourised pic of Custer and his officers is a bit mind blowing, although the gentleman in the middle has more than a passing resemblance to Jonny Depp.
