The bedroom of a French soldier has remained unchanged for almost 100 years since he was killed in the First World War.
When dragoons officer Hubert Rochereau was killed in Belgium in 1918, his parents preserved his old bedroom as a permanent shrine to their son.
And when they sold the large family house in 1936, they stipulated that it should not be changed for another 500 years.

Johnny Eck was born with sacral agenesis and had no legs. He had a twin brother Robert, seen here. He walked on his hands and had such a strong upper body he could do a one-armed handstand. The brothers joined the sideshow at age 12. They started in a magician’s act where Robert was ‘sawed in half’ and Johnny jumped up and ran about, which was a great hit even though it left some running for the exit. The brothers never married and retired together in a home in Baltimore.

Amongst the German soldiers taken as POWs at Walcheren by the British Special Service Brigade was this Dutch woman. She is seen here with her husband, a German soldier that she had married during the German occupation of the Netherlands. Refusing to leave his side, she marched with the German prisoners to the POW collection center. Walcheren, Zeeland, Netherlands. November 1944.

For the first time in a very long time, I am finally satisfied with something I colorized in like ten minutes or less. Here’s the last Imperial Children of Russia, from left: Grand Duchess Olga, Tsarevich Alexei, Grand Duchesses Tatiana, Maria, and Anastasia in 1906. [x]
