Help Solve the Mystery of the Bewitching Women In These Gorgeous Vintage Found Photos

Aug 3, 2015 By Megan Berman 0

A few weeks ago, photographer Meagan Abell was thrift store shopping in Richmond, Virginia, when she came across a box of film negatives. Curious about the images, she bought the negatives, took them home, and scanned them…


And was absolutely stunned by the photographs’ beautiful, moody atmosphere.


The devastatingly gorgeous results show two young women, bathed in the rosy, golden light of the setting sun, standing on a beach, and walking into the ocean.


Unfortunately, the owner of the thrift store has no idea where the photos came from though, judging by the style of dress, Abell’s best guess is that they were take in the 1940s or 1950s. She thinks the film is most likely 60mm, and may be Kodachrome.


But beyond that, the incredible photographs and their subjects are a total mystery.


So Abell turned to Facebook to help her solve the mystery. Using the hashtag #‎FindTheGirlsOnTheNegatives, tens of thousands of people have shared the images and are busy searching for the mystery women…


And, so far, there have been a few developments.

35 of the Creepiest Babies Ever Painted During the Renaissance

Jul 29, 2015 By Abby Heugel 0

The Renaissance literally means “re-birth,” and history showed it was a time of transition for Europe not only artistically, but also politically, religiously, and scientifically. In other words, it was kind of the link between the dark Middle Ages and today.

Speaking of today, Instagram and Facebook feeds (not to mention paintings and art) most often depict children in adorable positions or at least looking semi-normal. That was not the case during the Renaissance, as they were apparently disturbing demon spawn.

Thanks to this Tumblr account, we can get creeped out any time we want.

You barely notice the evil elf ears due to the prominent horns.

30 Unbelievably Sexist Ads That Would NEVER Be Printed Today

Jul 17, 2015 By Abby Heugel 0

We like to think that things were “simpler” decades ago, and in a lot of ways, they were.

But unfortunately, that also meant there were a lot of simple minds that thought women belonged in the house and nowhere else.

These ideals aren’t completely eradicated and sadly, probably never will be, but at least they aren’t on display in mainstream forms of media in such a blatant way…for the most part.

The fact that these ads were once considered “okay” simply boggles the mind…

Who would have thought?
