Excellent and thought provoking image.

I am thinking, Why has Hitler got a framed photo of himself in his bathroom!

Lee Miller's story is rather sad...

Lee Miller: the woman in Hitler’s bathtub
 
Excellent and thought provoking image.

I don't think its actually "his" bathroom. He had not really lived in the apartment since 1934. It was permanently occupied by Angela Raubel and her daughters (or at least the surviving daughter), and various other people from time to time.

Presumably the photo was staged for maximum effect and the photograph placed there deliberately.

The Lunar Module of Apollo 17 leaves the moons surface and returns to the Command Module in December '72.
This was the last Apollo mission to the moon and was the last time a human has travelled beyond Earth orbit. We all thought back then that by 2018 we would have a Moon base and be travelling to Mars as a matter of routine.
Still, we can always watch re-runs of Star Wars!
The Lunar module pilot was the only geologist to go to the moon, Harrison Schmidt. Still alive and kicking

I thought the Boche had parachutes and it was only the British who thought it would lead to cowardly abandoning of their aircraft under fire. I may be wrong though. Its the red wine, you know.
Not called the 20 minuters for nothing. Woof!
 
I love these colourised photos. For me they add another depth to history.

This one is Cleveland-class Light Cruiser, ‘USS Santa Fe’ CL-60 pulls alongside Essex-class Aircraft Carrier, ‘USS Franklin’ CV-13 as it lists towards its starboard side after suffering two direct hits from a pair of armour piercing bombs, dropped by a lone Japanese plane. Near Okinawa. 19th March, 1945

Top of Spion Kop after the battle known as ‘Murderous Acre’: Battle of Spion Kop on 24th January 1900 during the Great Boer War.
Battle of Spion Kop
Did you know that Ghandi was present at the battle? leading a team of Indian stretcher bearers.
And gave it's name to The Kop at Anfield, I believe.

Excellent spot.

I watched that thinking I was playing arcade Lunar Lander back in the late seventies, with added acronyms.

So hypnotic I forgot to take dinner out of the oven. Good job I like the crispy bits.

As an added bonus it reminded me of the amount of disdain I harbour for lunar hoax CTers. And flat earthers. And the rest of the tinfoiler community.

Raised a chuckle when one of the astronauts said something like “computer says yes”.

You leave us flat earthers alone. Where do you think all the water goes, huh? 8O
 
And does it come out the other side?
No, of course it doesn't.
Why?
Because it's obvious the world is flat.

t'other side gets it, filters and sends it back.

If the world is flat has anyone on the edge seen some one fall off the edge and walk back to tell the tale.

Just asking like.

Agreed totally about colour adding an extra dimension to these old photos.
