Bizarre Historical Pics… just for fun

Leave a comment

This blog is just for fun, has nothing to do with health…. 

spray tan

Spray Tan Vending Machine

Before there were tanning parlors, you could spray on a tan at a local vending machine. For just a dime, this 1949 machine would spray you with fake tanning lotion for thirty seconds.

baby cage

Baby Cage

That child isn’t being punished — she’s in a “portable baby cage,” invented in 1923 so that city babies could get fresh air and sun while their mothers did housework. Future First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt bought one for her daughter Anna. A neighbor threatened to call a child protection agency, which shocked Mrs. Roosevelt. “I thought I was being a very modern mother” she said.


Recruitment Royalty

This sad-looking recruit is the King himself—Elvis Presley, drafted in 1958. The military offered him a place in Special Services so he could carry on his career as long as he also entertained the troops.

Presley’s agent objected because he didn’t want the government to be able to get free Presley concerts!

Most Morbid Ad Ever  atabrine

Atabrine was the first synthetic form of quinine, used to fight malaria. The US military used it in extensively in the South Pacific during WWII. This sign is near a military hospital in New Guinea, where two-thirds of our troops came down with the disease.



Chasing Waterfalls

It was hard to save for retirement before Social Security and IRAs. Mrs. Annie Edison Taylor, a 63-year-old widow, was tired of low paying jobs, and decided to fund her golden years with a spectacular stunt. In 1901, she survived her trip in a barrel with a just a few cuts and bruises, but later said that she would rather walk up to the mouth of loaded cannon than attempt another trip over Niagara Falls.

Deluge Of Boozebooze

That’s not a flood — it’s illegal booze being poured out a Detroit window during Prohibition (1920-1933). Detroit was the main center for smuggling liquor from Canada into the United States. When Michigan state police raided a Detroit restaurant suspected of serving liquor, they wound up arresting the Mayor, a Congressman and a local sheriff.

gas mask


It may look like an old Sci-Fi movie, but this gas-mask and gas-proof pram were sold in England on the eve of WWII. During the First World War, German forces used poison gas on Allied troops and Britons feared that Hitler might release them on civilian populations.


Monkey Business

All astronauts get special training, including Ham the Space Chimp, who flew a Mercury mission in 1961. He had been trained by a neuroscientist to push a lever if he saw a blue light flash. Ham lived to the ripe old age of 26, after retiring to the North Carolina zoo in Asheboro.


Atomic Bomb Viewing Party

Just another afternoon in the innocent 1950s. with mother and son watching one of the thousands of A-bomb tests that took place in Nevada. Las Vegas took advantage of the explosions to promote tourism, with “atomic cocktails” served at “Dawn Bomb Parties”.  As one casino owner later said, “The best thing to happen to Vegas was the Atomic Bomb.”


Scandalous In 1907

This photo might not seem shocking today, but it was the epitome of scandal in 1907. Early women’s rights activist Annette Kellerman posed in this fitted, one-piece bathing suit to protest the restrictive clothing of the day. She was arrested for indecency because of this picture. Wow how things have certainly changed. LOL

mc D's


You probably don’t think that Ronald McDonald is much of a looker now, but his current incarnation is a definite upgrade from where he started. This is a photo of the original Ronald McDonald in 1963. WOW! And I thought he was ugly now….

for sale

Children For Sale

The three younger children in this heartbreaking picture were finally reunited in 2013. They all had stories of horrible abuse, both before and after they were sold. One claimed that their mother sold them because she needed bingo money, and because her new boyfriend didn’t like children. They never reunited with the oldest child. Ok my question is, This was legal? Crazy!

snowball fight

Snowballs Did That!?

It’s true — colleges used to be much tougher than they are now. These three sophomores were on the losing side of the annual Princeton Freshman-Sophomore snowball fight in 1893.

plastic surgery

First Plastic Surgery

Plastic surgery has come a long way since Walter Yeo received the first “skin flap” surgery after horrible injuries at the Battle of Jutland in 1916. Yeo’s surgery not only repaired his face, but gave him new functioning eyelids.

silly cycle

Silly Cycling

Tandem adult tricycles were a great fad in the 1880’s, since they were more stable than tandem bicycles. The Columbia Tricycle Company claimed that they insured “absolute freedom from danger of accident.” The unusual machine in this photo was manufactured by a number of large bicycle companies in Europe and the United States.

bathing suit

Bathing Suit Length

In the 1920s, beach patrols would measure the length of women’s swimsuits to ensure that they aren’t too revealing. Almost none of us would pass this test today. LOL

lunch break

Fairytale Cafeteria

This bizarre collection of people may seem inexplicable, but it all makes sense once you know where this cafeteria is located. This is a photograph os the Disneyland employee cafeteria during lunch break in 1961.


The Hindenburg

Seeing the Hindenburg go up in flames in real life must have been one of the most dramatic things in many people’s lives. Eyebrows must have been singed for miles. The Hindenburg disaster took place on Thursday, May 6, 1937, as the German passenger airship LZ 129 Hindenburg caught fire and was destroyed during its attempt to dock with its mooring mast at Naval Air Station Lakehurst, which is located adjacent to the borough of Lakehurst, New Jersey, United States. Of the 97 people on board (36 passengers and 61 crewmen), there were 35 fatalities (13 passengers and 22 crewmen). One worker on the ground was also killed, making a total of 36 dead.


Hippo Drawn Cart

What the heck were people doing in the past with Hippos? Why did this Hippo give in and pull this cart?

Hello, I am an artist, health nut, nature nut, certified holistic nutritional counselor, mom and entrepreneur, to name a few! I have been self employed my entire adult life and owned a non toxic nail spa for 16 yrs, until my car accident. I would also sell my art and jewelry. I had to close my business when I died in the car accident. While I was in the hospital I signed up to study nutrition with The Institute for Integrative Nutrition online classes to heal myself. Copy and paste this link for a free sample class: . Doctors just kept putting me on meds and increasing the meds, I was afraid of becoming addicted to the meds they had me on, this is why I signed up to study nutrition, to heal my pain with food & herbs, not drugs. I died for 7 minutes, I was in a coma for three days & ICU for two weeks, had many broken bones and 3 emergency surgeries and I had to spend five months in a rehab facility and I still came home in a wheelchair. I had to live with my parents for 8 months. I had a colostomy bag from the accident and I had a reverse colostomy a year and a half after the accident. I did it with no narcotic pain meds, thanks to what I learned with IIN. I came home from the hospital after having my intestines sown back together and I did it with no narcotic pain meds, that amazes me, I had to repeat it.
