1. The Dynasphere
The Dynasphere is a monowheel vehicle which was built in 1930 by J. A. (John Archibald) Purves. There were two prototypes; the smaller one below was an electrical model, and the bigger one was with a gasoline motor. The Dynasphere can travel up to 25 miles per hour.
2. A policeman judges an ankle contest.
So this was a competition. I can truly say that our generation have gone way too far. This was an Ankle Contest held at Hounslow, London in 1930 where a policeman judges the competition. Pretty unique huh? What can you say? Oh there she is, the Miss Ankle London 1930.
3. Alfred Hitchcock and the MGM Lion Leo
Have you remembered the roaring lion before a movie starts? That is the MGM Production and yes it is the lion below. The lion is Leo the iconic roaring lion logo. And the man below is Alfred Hitchcock, the legendary English film director and producer. So this was the making of the emblematic MGM roar for the studio’s logo. Both is having a tea, so I guess this would be a sort of a partnership. Truly amazing right? I mean who would have thought that? You might get beheaded by the lion!
4. A fugitive being dragged by border patrols
Two border patrol officers attempt to keep a fugitive in the US in 1920s, so that he doesn’t escape U.S.A. and enter Mexico. How would you judge this photo? Might it be staged one, to show border issues? Or why does the fugitive wants to escape U.S.A in that time?
