Since the invention of the camera, photography has played a pivotal role in capturing and recording our past so that later generations can live vicariously what others witnessed first hand. As billions of photos have been taken throughout the years, only the smallest fraction of those rare photos from history will ever leave an indelible mark that will never be forgotten.

If “a picture speaks a 1,000 words,” these rare photos from history speak volumes beyond that, and capture some of history’s most famous faces in places that you’ve likely never seen them before.
