By | January 7, 2023

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.

Lee Majors and Farrah Fawcett were two of the most famous people on the planet in the 1970s. Not only was he the $6 Million Man, but she fought crime as a member of Charlie’s Angels, and more importantly she was the focus of the world’s most popular poster.

Majors claims that he’s the guy who chose the famous photo for Fawcett, the one with Fawcett in a tight red swimsuit. Being a couple was more than just figuring out which swimsuits to wear, the two fame-os also kept each other company while facing down photographers. He told People:

It was hard to get around. It was not quite as hard as it is today with everyone has a cellphone and the social media is so quick. Back then we only had to deal with the paparazzi at large. A lot of time you could evade them, but not all the time.

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.
