Fearless painters on the Woolworth Building in New York City, 1926.


'Cow shoes' used by moonshiners in the Prohibition days to disguise their footprints, 1924.

During prohibition bootleggers, moonshiners, and rum runners were doing their best to avoid getting caught by the fuzz while they were making their own alcohol and selling it to people who just wanted a drink. Moonshiners did pretty much everything they could to throw the police off their scent, and that includes wearing these “cow shoes.”
So how did they work? Cow shoes were simple pieces of wood that moonshiners fixed to the bottoms of their shoes in order to make their footprints look like hoof prints. The main belief was that if cops saw a simple set of hoof prints they wouldn’t follow up on it. Genius.




Gunnar Kaasen and his team of 13 dogs, led by the Siberian husky, Balto, completed the last leg of a 1925 trip to deliver 300,000 units of diphtheria antitoxin to Nome, Alaska.

There are some people who are just born to be heroes, and Gunnar Kaasen is one of those men. This Norwegian born man ended up in America during the gold rush of the early 20th century, and he found himself to be an excellent musher, or dog sledder, and he ended up moving to Nome, Alaska on the hunt for gold.
After an outbreak of diphtheria in Nome, a group of 20 mushers began a multi-day, 674 mile relay to get the medication to the small town. Despite winds that were so intense that they flipped his slid, Kaasen made it to Nome on schedule, saving the town.




Dracula's Castle in Romania, 1929.
