These are cool.
The socks make them look like the Dutch national baseball team.
Unfortunately for Chicago, they aren't the Dutch national baseball team.
Remembering Anchorage In The Seventies
Upgradable to dual processors and 128MB RAM. Totally futureproof! Oh, and 540MB is more than enough HD space - what could we possibly need more for?
@gnomefromnome interesting based on Inflation. The VCR now would be $2,700.65!!!

Inner German Border
West German Bundesgrenzschutz personnel, civilians and an East German border guard on opposite sides of the border line
If they are on opposing sides, I would love to hear the story of that picture.

RAF Wing Commander Andy Green drives Thrust SSC at Black Rock Desert, Nevada to a new Land Speed Record of 763.035mph/1,227.985km/h, becoming the first car to travel faster than the speed of sound.
I wonder if the Bloodhound will actually get over 1K mph. It will be interesting to see the attempt!
I can already hear the unreal tournament announcer saying "Eagle Eye".
Took a tour onboard Concorde G-BBDG that is on display at Brooklands a few years back. Unsurprisingly narrow in comparison to a conventional passenger plane.
Still a big shame they don't fly anymore...
ROI. Burns many a good thing.

The bottom version of that reminds me of the view of the Maritime museum in Greenwich viewed from half way up the hill to the observatory.
That's progress for you.
That's good urban planning for you.
9th November 1989
Günter Schabowski, spokesperson for East Germany's ruling SED party, at a press conference announcing the removal of travel restrictions for East Germans wishing to leave the country, i.e. travel to a western country.
This was a genuine policy drafted earlier that day but was supposed to be implemented the following day, giving the border staff time to prepare. Schabowski was not aware of the implementation date and when asked specifically when the restrictions were to be lifted answered:
East Berliners stormed the checkpoints of the Berlin Wall, overwhelming the border guards who had no option but to allow them passage.
Thus began the end of the Berlin Wall and a year later, the reunification of Germany.
dredging for gold in the Bering Sea, ca. 1904
Wow. I spent a week in the mountains of BC, exploring a lot of old logging roads and coming across a few old and forgotten cabins/trailer homes belonging to long gone prospectors. While going down a trail by Yanks peak, we came across an old machine used to dredge the rivers in the area back in the early 1900's. Amazing to think of the environmental havoc they caused for some tiny gold flakes.
Wow. I hope that person wasn't in the water long! Ouch!
Oh, and talking about ecological disasters, check out the hydraulic mining in California at Malakoff Diggings. Ouch!
