This captivating gallery is a nostalgic journey through history, featuring rare and stunning photographs that transport us back to the most magical decades of the past.

There's something about being a child that makes every experience incredibly fun. Even hanging out on a deck somewhere in the city and get sprayed with a hose by a nun can be a magical time. Everything is so new and exciting that each experience comes with its own piece of joy.

Think about this photo from the nun's perspective. It's likely summer in the city, it's a hot day and there's no pool where these kids can cool off but they need to get some fresh air. She may be giving these kids the most low rent version of cooling off but it's the thought that counts. Clearly, these kids are having a great time.

Pictured here with his second wife, Jill Ireland, Charles Bronson was a serious man's man. His early life was wracked with poverty. He grew up in coal country and was so broke that he often had to wear his sister's clothing to school. This not only instilled in him a sense that he needed to work, but it made him tough.

His early acting career was somewhat fruitless, with his big break coming when he was 39 years old and received a role in The Magnificent Seven. Eight years later, Bronson married Jill Ireland and formed one of the most lasting relationships in Hollywood. The couple co-starred in a series of films together, and often drove to the location with their children to make sure that the family stayed together.

When not on set the couple disappeared to Vermont where Ireland raised horses and trained their daughter, Zuleika, to follow in her footsteps.
