Invented in the 19th century, the "mass shaving machine" can shave a dozen men simultaneously. Eric Sykes, an English comedian, demonstrated the device on an unaired pilot for a TV series about 1800s innovations.

When you look closely, the last known photo taken of the Titanic gives you a hint as to why the ship eventually sank. As the story goes, the photographer of the photo was an Irish priest, and instead of the iceberg being the reason that the Titanic went down, it was actually because the priest forgot to say a Hail Mary as the Titanic was sailing away.

This photo depicts Hugo Gernsback wearing his "teleyeglasses" in 1963. Gersnback, an inventor of such innovations as a combination electric hair brush/comb and a battery-powered handheld illuminated mirror, is best known to science fiction fans as the founder of Amazing Stories magazine! •

This grotesque photograph of a fish may put you off just a little bit. Taken in 1903, it marks an important day in the history of fishing – as it were – because on this day, a man named Edward Llewellen broke the World Record for the biggest sea bass ever caught. He single-handedly caught the mammoth fish weighing a whopping 425 lbs.

There are several instances where moms have tried to sell their kids for cash. This is a photograph dating somewhere between the late 1940s and early 1950s of a ‘for sale’ advertisement where four kids were being sold off by their parents. Apparently, the man and woman were in dire poverty and had no other means of making money. •

If you think something smells fishy, it could be because this epic historical photograph  actually features a taxidermist’s preservation of the massive catch.  This giant sea creature was caught off the coast of New Jersey in 1933. It allegedly weighed more than 5,000 pounds!

Seeing how many people you could pack into a phone booth was what teens did before the Internet, 1959.
