In 1968, the iconic Earthrise over Moon photograph taken by Apollo 8 astronauts captured the world's imagination, showcasing our planet from an entirely new perspective. Meanwhile, Swindon Works Map from the 1940s highlighted the industrial advancements of that era. In 1919, a solar eclipse mesmerized observers worldwide as they witnessed this rare celestial event unfold before their eyes. The same year also saw the birth of legendary musician Jimi Hendrix, whose electrifying performances continue to inspire generations. The mysterious Bigfoot film shot in 1967 added fuel to debates about elusive creatures lurking in remote corners of our world. On a lighter note, comedy duo Laurel and Hardy brought laughter to audiences with their timeless humor and impeccable timing. Roy Rogers, an American singing cowboy actor known for his role alongside his trusty horse Trigger, captivated fans throughout his career spanning several decades. Silent films like Little Rascals showcased adorable child actors such as Spanky, Buckwheat, Mickey, Alfalfa and Darla who entertained audiences with their mischievous adventures. Even further back in history lies a stunning Moroccan wall feature dating back to the 19th century—a testament to intricate craftsmanship and artistic expression during that period.
