A 1905 photo of Dreamland, Coney Island at night, click to see the full size

Vintage (1800s to 1970s) photos, both amateur and professional, at Shorpy.com
Presented are many high-quality photos from the dawn of photography when big negatives ruled.

*****
Panzer: Pzkpfw II, Ausf C
Some new recruits, probably at a training facility in Germany ca. 1940-42.
Note that the trooper sitting on the Panzer II (likely to be the drill instructor) is wearing the black panzer sidecap, introduced in 1940, while the recruits have to make do with the old style panzer beret as well as wearing denim fatigue work wear.
Maybe this was "now try and dig up a panzer stuck in the mud" day...
