While a photo can be worth a thousand words,historical photos are worth so much more than that. A good historical photo can throw us into a different time, enabling us to empathize with a particular moment that is otherwise hard to imagine. Many of these occurred before many readers were even alive.

Here are some favorites worth reflecting on. All of the photos are real,no shopping or editing whatsoever:
