We are given plenty of information during our history lessons at school and we are told stories and facts about famous historical figures and events that happened at the different periods of time in the past. Yet, we are not presented with the full information. Even when we are talking about renowned people, we should not forget that once they were young too and that they were occupied with ordinary everyday things.
Below we are offering you a collection of historical pictures that present well-known people or events. Thanks to these photos now you can see those famous people from a completely different angle.

You know what happened next.
This photo’s origin is still argued about. One version is that this shot, together with several others, was produced just after the end of WWI in order to raise funds to help Armenian Genocide survivors. This photo is meant to depict a Turk official taunting Armenian children with bread.
The war against Japan ended on August 6 1945, when the US Army dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima. Not only the city was destroyed, but thousands of people were killed. The ones that survived had radiation injuries.
For several years, a black-and-white photograph purporting to show a man holding an enormous grasshopper has been widely shared on social media. The image showing a man holding a three-foot long grasshopper is not real. This picture was created as a prank in the 1930s and continues to fool viewers today.
On the other hand, it’s an amusing example of photo editing before Photoshop. And it has a story to tell. In fact, giant grasshoppers were popular subjects for postcards during the 1930s when grasshoppers were a common pest.
