Before they actually got in the water, children of olde were sometimes trained in their form out of the water. Here, eight kids are seen helping each other practice their strokes. The photo was taken in 1923.
A soldier fainted during a 1970 birthday procession for Queen Elizabeth. It happened at the worst possible time, as she was passing by. Standing stock-still in the full heat of a sunny day in a heavy uniform is quite a challenge.

44. The old Stockholm telephone tower
The tower was built in the Swedish capital of Stockholm to connect over 5,000 telephone wires in 1887. It was shortly before telephone companies started burying their wires. Good thing, since the city’s residents hated it. The tower burned down in 1953.
