Iconic Photographs Not Suitable For All Viewers

Vintage Photos | July 6, 2020

The following photos are some of the most fascinating shots that have ever been taken. Even if you think you’ve seen them before… look closer. Some of these pictures tell mature stories about our nation’s history, others show a different side of people like Marilyn Monroe and Frank Sinatra.

These snapshots provide insight into some of the most tumultuous moments from history. Each era had its own struggles and successes, and they’ve all been captured here.

History books paint the past in one specific light, without compromise, and that’s why these photos are so important. They take our preconceived notions of history and turn them upside down.

Remember to look closely at the following images… everything is not what it seems.

Lovely actress Lynda Carter in the early 1970s. 😍

Always a performer, Lynda Carter didn’t always want to be on the screen. Early on she had her eyes on being a singer, but she didn’t know how to get on stage with a band behind her.

Her performance life got a jump start when she was 21 years old and entered into a beauty pageant in Arizona. After becoming Miss World America in 1972 she could write her own check.

Carter toured with a band for a while, but producers who caught her during the pageant had ideas outside of helping her career in rock. They started casting her in small roles on television and she never looked back.

Jacob Shelton is a Los Angeles based writer. For some reason this was the most difficult thing he’s written all day, and here’s the kicker – his girlfriend wrote the funny part of that last sentence. As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
