Even if retouched the color changes the view of those times and the photos look more advantageous as opposed to colored movies.
very nice and interesting photos..i want more…
What is the officer pointing at on the photo with the pilot? Possibly a location in the USA where they manufactured Lend-Lease aircrafts?
He’s pointing approximately to southwest Texas, so I imagine he’s saying: “This was once Mexico, but the imperialists Americans took over this land.”
No, it was the Tehanos ‘y Tehana who took over Texas. The truth of the matter is, that as many Hispanics fought on the side of Texas Independence as Anglo s did.
Santa Anna was a would be Napoleon style dictator who lost Texas for Mexico, even a lot of the Mexicanos did not like him. Mexico’s history is full of leaders who oppressed their citizenry, Santa Anna was just one of many. Had Trotsky been allowed to survive his Stalinist Assassin, he may have brought Mexico into Communism. Trotsky was well-liked there.
Texas was once an entirely independent country from the United States and they were joined to the United States by a treaty. It is said that Texas is the only state in the USA that can “legally” secede from the USA.
I have family from Texas, (r)evolutionist. I am related to some very interesting people there. Including at least one Apache tribe.
I was only joking my friend. And there you had to get my hopes all up by pointing out about Trotsky’s history in Mexico.
He is pointing at Northern Mexico roughly around Monterrey a region that has always been Mexican territory.You see things where there is nothing to be seen(r)evolutionist and how can a nation that itself took land from others forcibly have anything to say about another? Latvia,Estonia,Belarus,Ukraine sure such actions where started by Imperial Russia but the USSR followed the same policy.
So, you’re saying he’s saying, “See thees place? Thees is where I get my Carta Blanca beeer!”
A Corona would be ok instead
Maybe they where pointing out places that they wished to go on a trip so more than likely so.
Well, he was popular there, I was not kidding about that. Imagine if he had lived long enough to bring communism to Mexico in the late fifties early sixties, the world map might look very different!
Unlike Cuba, Mexico shares a common land border with the USA. Instead of a Berlin Wall, we might have seen a Southern United States Wall. I can see a novel in this idea, “What if Trotsky Led Mexico into Communism”.
I wonder what else would have turned out differently? Something to think about. Reminds me of a book entitled “If the South had Won the Civil War”.
Maybe someone could write a novel?
Texas has been under six different flags.
Jejeje, i do not know why he is pointing there but he is pointing exactly where I live, on Saltillo city, México
Very nice, i wonder who the pilot with the 24 kill marks is, anyone know who he is ??
It’s Mikhail Dmitrievich Baranov
long live comrade stalin！！！
Apart from the fact that he wasn’t anyone’s comrade, that he is dead and that he didn’t live exceptionally long (well, maybe he did in terms of being an old bolshevik and surviving the Stalinist purges), you are completely right.
The men in the 15th photo are making fun of the German over boots the other man wears valenki.
fifth photo, there’s a German using a cell phone!
The title should read “colourized photos.” None of these are original colour film photos, they have all be coloured later.
Keep em coming.
