The photo was taken in 1910. It’s the last photograph taken of Florence Nightingale. (It's rare: she was reluctant throughout her life to be photographed.) It shows 90 year old Florence in her bedroom at her home in London. The photo was taken by Lizzie Caswall Smith. On the back of the photo Smith wrote, “Taken just before she died, house near Park Lane. The only photograph I ever took out of studio. I shall never forget the experience.” by beth

Photographs of John and Jackie Kennedy openly expressing their affection, which was a rare event. After the Cuban Missile Crisis and especially after the loss of their son Patrick, their relationship became stronger and Jack started to shed his aversion to public displays of affection. The last photo is heartbreaking, as it was taken only a couple hours before JFK was assassinated and is one of only a few taken of them holding hands. by margery

Although she looks very much alive, she is not. This photo was taken of a young woman (possibly a teenager) not long after her death. If the photographer got there just before, or right after the death, it was easier to pose someone. Such a remarkable photo of a beautiful young lady who died in her prime. by tabu-sam

Nick and Bobbie Ercoline were dating at the time of the Woodstock concert in 1969 and didn't know their photo was being taken. Later they got married and have been together for over 40 years and are now proud grandparents. Their photo, which appeared on the cover of the Woodstock album, defined their generation.

A few days before their wedding, Alex Voutsinas and Donna Balzano of Boynton Beach, Florida, were looking through old photos to display at their reception. Donna found a Polaroid of her first visit to Walt Disney World, when she was five years old. Alex noticed a man in the background who looked awfully familiar--his own father, pushing a stroller. Who was in the stroller? Alex! It was the couples' first photo together, snapped 15 years before by kellie

A corpse-pit at Nordhausen.  Look hard at the condition of the corpses.  These men, women and children were not taken from their homes and sent straight to death.  They were worked, abused, and starved for days or weeks or months before death overtook them.  To survive such a protracted hell seems impossible.  Yet, some did survive.  Alone, of their friends, their families, their communities, a few survived.   Though, to daily remember living by winnie
