Eerie Photos Not Suitable For All Viewers

It’s easy to take the Golden Gate Bridge for granted. Thousands of people drive across it every day and they biggest problem they face is traffic. That’s all thanks tot he brace construction workers who put their lives on the line to create this giant red feat of industrial design. Building began in earnest on January 5, 1933, and the next four years saw a construction that used a $130,000 safety net to save 19 different men who fell from the bridge over the course of the four years that it took to construct. The men who survived the fall became known as the “Halfway to Hell Club.”

The remains of a Thracian carriage and two horses that were buried upright.

It’s rare that animals are preserved as well as these are, and it’s honestly fascinating to see what life was like in 2,500 years ago. These incredible remains of a complete Thracian carriage and two horses were discovered in a Thracian tomb in a village called Svestari in north-east Bulgaria. The horses and carriage, which were found upright were buried alongside a collection of various artifacts, which means that the horses were buried alive. It’s not clear exactly who this tomb of riches was for, but they must have been a big deal in Bulgaria. Too bad about these horses though.  

Dolly Parton with her husband Carl Dean, together since her first day in Nashville

There has never been and there never will be a love like the one between country songstress Dolly Parton and her husband Carl Dean. These two have been together since Parton’s first day in Nashville. They met at the laundromat and they’ve been going steady ever since. Why don’t more people know about Dolly’s man? Because they don’t their marriage in the limelight. Parton explained:

He’s always supporting me as long as I don’t try to drag him in on it. He’s always been my biggest fan behind the scenes… But anyway, he’d never come dragging around. I’d rather bring somebody else with me, you know? He’s never jealous of that either.

Did Ernest Shackleton place a wanted ad for a South Pole expedition in 1907?

A rugged expedition with little promise of return but with a large promise of glory, who wouldn’t want to freeze their buns off with Ernest Shackleton? If you’re not up on your turn of the century explorers, Shackleton was an important figure in an era of Antarctic Exploration, and he led several British expeditions to the continent. And while he definitely took out any sea faring man who was brave enough to take to the ice with him, he probably didn’t put out an ad in The Times before being flooded with 5,000 responses. It’s a fun story, but there’s been a $100 bounty up for anyone who can find an actual copy of the ad since the late ‘90s. 

A giant spider crab found in Japan, 1904,

Okay well have fun sleeping tonight after looking at this giant spider crab. Japanese spider crabs are known as the taka-ashi-gani, which is a literal translation of “tall legs crab.” These giant crabs can live up to 100 years and they grow armored exoskeletons that protect them from octopi and larger predators. Their legs can grow up to 15 feet in length, and they tend to be found at depths of 500 ft to 1000 ft in the Pacific ocean near Japan which means that they’re definitely not scuttling around under your bed or in your closet. Maybe.

A breastplate that belonged to 19 year-old Antoine Fraveau - he didn't survive the Battle of Waterloo in 1815.

Ouch. That’s the first thing that comes to mind when looking at this amazing piece of body armor. Not only did the cannonball that hit the young Antoine Fraveau pierce the body armor, but it went straight through the young man and out his back. That’s definitely one way to have a final day on the battlefield. While fighting at the Battle of Waterloo in June 1815, Antoine Favreau was sent into the field by Napoleon and quickly found an unfortunate end. It’s amazing that his immaculate bronze breastplate was so well reserved, especially in the heat of battle.  

Colorized photograph of the Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna in 1887.

Before meeting her untimely end in 1918, Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna was considered to be one of the most caring royals of the 20th century. Born Princess Elisabeth of Hesse and by Rhine in the United Kingdom, she was married to Grand Duke Sergei Alexandrovich, the second youngest son of Alexander II, Emperor of All Russia in 1884. She was an impressive addition to the Russian empire and while she never had any children she helped arrange many marriages throughout the royal bloodline. After her husband’s death she opened the Convent of Saints Martha and Mary and became its abbess in 1909. She operated the convent until she passed away.

Cellphones were predicted in 1953, but what apple smart watches?

Okay so this guy is either a time traveler or he just had an uncanny ability to think about the future. Mark R. Sullivan of the Pacific Telephone & Telegraph Company was clearly used to the changing of technology and understood that these types of things are in a constant state of flux. It’s fascinating to see him guess the invention of smart phones straight down tot he advent of video chat applications. And while there’s not technically a translation app for our phones just yet, we do have google translate and a variety of programs to allow us to better understand one another.

A pair of spooky skeletons riding horses for Halloween in the 1920s

Just imagine it, you’re walking through the streets of a small town with a bag full of candy in hand. The full moon is out, and then you hear the beating of hooves down coming down the street. Out of the darkness you see two skeletal horses carrying their spooky riders right towards you - what could they be? In the 1920s this was a normal costume for people and their animals, not only were these costumes a simple way to celebrate Halloween without having to go all out. Although, wouldn’t you say that covering a horse from head to foot in a Skelton sheet is more or less going all out?

Stephen King's first big press notice

Source: Reddit

Today we think of Stephen King as the “master of horror,” a writer who’s responsible for just about every major genre property that’s on the screens both big and small, but in the 1970s he was just another schlub from Maine who was shopping around his spooky stories. That all changed when he sold Carrie to Doubleday. The hardback edition didn’t explode initially, but when the title went to paperback it turned into one of the biggest books of the decade. After that, King continued to write and didn’t slow down in the least. He continues to scare today. 

The line of customers at the Grand Opening of the first McDonalds in Moscow, 1990.

Source: Reddit

McDonalds has been a staple of the American way of life since the first restaurant was opened in 1948. By the ‘70s the fast food restaurant was more than an inexpensive place to eat, it was a way of life. It represented freedom, so when McDonalds made its way to Russia in 1990 people flipped out and stood in line for hours to get a Big Mac on January 31, 1990. At the time the food at the new establishment was steep, with a Big Mac running 3.50 rubles, more than a monthly bus pass. That didn’t matter to the people of Moscow, they were ready to thaw out the Cold War with a burger hot off the grill.

The Titanic was meant to be unsinkable, and with the amount of man hours that went into it you’d think that claim would be warranted. In order to simply build one anchor workers had toward with tons of high grade steel. One entire anchor was made of about 16 tons of steel which had to be super heated until it was read hot in order to form the anchor’s shaft. At the time of construction there were more than 3,000 men employed in the small English town where the anchor was made, and it took two years from start to finish to actually finish construction.

Conrad Veidt, the original inspiration for the Joker, from the 1928 film "The Man Who Laughs."

Conrad Veidt was the master of changing his look to suit his roles, and in The Man Who Laughs he transformed himself completely in order to look like a sideshow freak who was forced to smile for the rest of his life. More similar to The Hunchback of Notre Dame than modern horror films, Veidt’s turn as the character has influenced both the horror genre and one of the most beloved villains of the 20th century. While creating the initial design for the Joker, Batman’s nemesis, the artists behind the world’s greatest detective studied Veidt’s look and used it to create their forever smiling character.

The imposing Bran Castle watches over Romania, 1920.

Source: Reddit

Known as Dracula’s home, Bran castle is supposedly the fortress that inspired Bram Stoker to write Dracula, the Rosetta Stone for gothic writing and horror in general. By the time Bram Stoker’s Dracula was released in 1897 the castle had fallen into disrepair and was in serious need of a renovation. After Transylvania officially became a part of greater Romania, the citizens of Brasov voted to rebuild the dilapidated castle and restore it to its former glory. Once the castle was back up and running it became a favorite residence of Queen Maria of Romania much to the pleasure of the townspeople. 

A Victorian radiator with a built-in warming oven to keep plates or food warm.

The Victorians may not have been as technologically advanced as people are today, but they were some of the most forward thinking people since the Romans. As the population grew and space became more of an issue than it had ever been before, the Victorians came up with crafty new ways to maximize what space they had while maintaining a handsome looking home. This radiator that was built with a warming oven was used in dining rooms at the turn of the century to not only keep the room warm but to warm food and drink. These radiator warmers worked remarkably well with some of them keeping drinks as warm as 110 degrees. 

A deserted Ottoman supply train that was ambushed by Lawrence of Arabia during World War I

While most people only think of Lawrence of Arabia as one of the greatest films of all time, it’s actually based on the true story of Thomas Edward Lawrence, British officer and explosives expert, who helped bring down the Ottoman Empire during World War I by destroying the trains on their supply line. 1917 and 1918 were huge years for Lawrence, as he spent most of them blowing up sections of railroad tracks, leaving trains like this stranded in the desert. More often the not the trains were too expensive to move without tracks so they were just left to rust in the dust. 

Salvador Dalí walking his anteater in Paris, 1969

Nothing to see here folks, just Salvador Dalí walking an anteater through Paris, just move along folks. Dalí was a surrealist so it’s not totally out of the question for the painter to be seen walking around the city of lights with this strange looking animal - was this something that he did every day? Or was it a one time thing in order to get press? Aside from walking his anteater, Dalí also had a pet ocelot that he liked to pose with. While the surrealist wasn’t known for featuring animals in his work, he loved to hang out with them, but of course he couldn’t just get a dog like a normal painter. 

A smiling postman in Chicago poses with a load of Christmas parcels in 1929

Christmas time in the city is one of the greatest times of the year. People are smiling, the snow is falling, and presents are being opened by boys and girls alike. You’ve heard that the United States Post Office delivers whether there’s rain sleet or snow, and in that case that claim goes double because this happy go lucky postman is working on Christmas Day. In the 1920s the postal service didn’t have nearly as many people working for them as they do now, and they definitely have the shipping technology to get packages across the country in an expedient way. The packages may not have arrived as quickly as they could, but it feels good to know that guys like this were out there making sure presents made it to the right tree. 

Only cool kids rode a Schwinn

Source: Pinterest

In the ‘60s the coolest bikes were Schwinn Sting-Rays, the bikes that everyone wanted. Known as "the bike with the sports car look,” the Sting-Ray was the official bike of the summer, inspiring kids across America to take to the streets and tear through town with their friends causing trouble and having a heck of a good time. Sting-Rays don’t look like your standard mountain bike, their short frame, high rise handlebars and long, bucket shaped saddle has the feel of a vehicle that’s like no other. After they were introduced in 1963 more than 45,000 bikes were sold and over the course of the next few years Schwinn continued to dominate the market with their magnificent Sting-Rays.

Before "The Customer Is Always Right existed," rudeness was not tolerated.

Is there any phrase in the English language that’s as devastating as “you get no hot dog?” Today we’re used to diners and restaurants that are owned by major corporations, that have a reputation to keep up with, but in the 1940s and ‘50s people working at diners were often either owners or long time employees of their places of business and they didn’t want to put up with a bunch of jerks ruining their day. This sign is just one of many that dotted the United States to let customers know that if they acted up or got out of control they’d be looking for a meal elsewhere.

Special delivery, two gals deliver ice in lower Manhattan, New York City, 1918.

Before everyone and their grandmother had a refrigerator and a freezer in their homes people depended on ice deliveries to help keep their food cold for long periods of time. These smiling beauties are carrying out a major necessity for people living in big cities, and much like the women who followed in their footsteps in the 1940s, they’re taking over jobs from men who were overseas for the war. During World War I any able bodied gentleman who was of the proper age joined the military to help the Allies in Europe, leaving thousands of jobs unattended. American women didn’t flinch and they picked up the slack, or in this case the ice.

Sir Ian McKellen with his stunt and scale doubles on the set of "Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring"

Source: Reddit

Doesn’t Ian McKellan just seem like the coolest guy? He’s appeared in so many memorable roles, but he says that many of his greatest on camera memories come from filming the Lord of the Rings trilogy in New Zealand. He told Indiewire

It may be my impression but I don’t remember a green screen on The Lord of the Rings. If Gandalf was on top of a mountain, I’d be there on the mountain. The technology was being invented while we were making the film. [In ‘The Lord of the Rings’] I wasn’t involved in any of that, I was away acting on a mountain. I tend not to remember the bad times, but I don’t think there were any. I think I enjoyed every single moment of making those films.

Retired teacher, Antonio La Cava, driving his "Il Bibliomotocarro"

Reading is one of the most important things for a developmental brain. Whether someone is taking in fiction, science, or a meaty biography, those words help us grow and realize our full potential. Books can inspire us to great things and teach us things we never knew about ourselves, which is why it’s a shame when less developed areas don’t have the kind of literary access that’s available in larger cities. Retired teacher Antonio La Cava is attempting to fix that in Spain with his Bibliomotocarro, a traveling library driven from town to town to offer books to people of all ages. He told the BBC:

I was strongly worried about growing old in a country of non-readers. Carrying out such action has a value, not only social, not only cultural, but has a great ethical meaning.

The Statue of Liberty in its original copper form before it was transported to New York City

Source: Pinterest

The Statue of Liberty has long inspired awe in the eyes of Americans as she stands over New York, inviting the tired and poor onto the shores. But this intensely American statue was constructed in France by Gustave Eiffel and based on a design by French sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi. While the statue appears a deep sea foam green, she was originally copper. The green patina comes from years of oxidation caused by the salty sea air. After France sent the Statue of Liberty to America in 1886 the United States returned the favor by sending over a quarter scale replica of the statue which can now be seen in the middle of the river Seine.
