Old Pictures


Recommended Posts

Been watching the series on Netflix about the evolution of the tank in warfare.

The German Panzers were OK, but the Tiger, with it's 88mm main gun was terrifying.

I believe this is a Tiger that my grandpa took a picture of after a battle...

Iron lungs, polio patients from the days before the vaccine. 

When I was in the first grade they started testing the polio vaccine in our school.  Half of the kids got the new vaccine, half of the kids got a placebo.  As I recall, the shot was in a series of two or three shots over a month or two.  Anyway, when the vaccine proved successful, and not fatal, those who had originally gotten the placebo had to then get the real thing.  I was fortunate enough to have gotten the genuine vaccine during the trial, so didn't need to repeat.

Somewhere in the UK?  That looks like a Mullard logo on the box on the top shelf at the left...


Dunno. The roof structure looks like a design commonly used in the UK.
