What the history books didn’t show you.
There are many photos from throughout history that are instantly recognizable.
From firefighters raising the American flag at Ground Zero on 9/11 to the infamous sailor kissing his lover in Times Square at the end of World War II, some images have stood the test of time and will continue to provide a visual for generations to come. However, there are some incredible pictures that have been all but forgotten that really deserve more attention.
Check out some of these historical photographic gems!
Images that should have never been forgotten…
Joseph Stalin making funny faces at the camera.
Apparently the evil dictator had a silly side.
Believe it or not, infamous serial killer Rodney Alcala appeared on The Dating Game in 1978. Alcala was arrested in 2010 for 5 counts of murder between 1977-1979, meaning he had already claimed victims by the time he appeared on the show.
Needless to say, these two are no longer an item.
