Very nice, although I was expecting a punchline!

Great photos with the exception of Charles Manson and Che Guevera... Why in God's name would they be included with these celebrities? What are we glorifying here?

that was lovely
the first one was just Bonnie though the man in the picture is a texas ranger named Frank Hamer
he tried to sneak up on them
so in return they took this picture and sent in to the press and then it was all over the newspapers :)

What's being glorified is old photos. Not the subject matter, just the nostalgia. Forget the who, consider the times past.

I suspected it but now I have photographic proof. Aside from Diana and Bruce there were no Black, Latino, Asian, or Hispanic people in our world before 1965. Who open the door and let them in?

The one with Marilyn and JFK is a fake one, you can read more here:

Pretty sure that Sean Connery is a fake. Overall though, very cool pics.

Had a great time looking at these photos. It's always a wonder how one picture can bring so many memories.

when I first looked at the Star Wars cast, I briefly thought that Harrison Ford Was George W. Bush.

Re: The 1957 photo of John, Paul, and George. They were the Quarrymen back then - they became the Beatles in 1960.

When I liked the link to post to FaceBook, the thumbnail was a picture of obama that is not included in these. I deleted it on my page. Weird.

Great collection. Generally good comments with the exceptions of the comments by the Neanderthal racist (who let YOU in?) and the revisionist who wants to re-write and censor history by deleting stuff. Good luck with that delusion.
