Hey P&P people,
I don't normally forward this kind of stuff, but many of the historical photos below go beyond interesting.  Like stepping into Forrest Gump's time machine - always there at the right moment, seeing people and historical moments from an angle we've never seen before.  Get a load of Einstein in heels.
