Here are 14 such photographs from the past to give you Goosebumps and possibly nightmares.
1 Boiler blast
This photo shows the aftermath of a blast on the old timey steam engine. These steam engines used coal to heat up the water stored to make steam and run the engine and the train. Here is seems that something went seriously wrong in the boiler and it malfunctioned. This resulted in these shredded metal ribbons.
2 Medical college in 1900s
Medical colleges in 1900s were pretty gross and straight up ‘Hostel’ movie like. Corpses were routinely stolen from cemeteries or made available to students after any homeless person died. Also with next to no hygiene lessons, you can see the students cutting the corpse with bare hands, sans any gloves.
3 Posing with dead
The Spanish Civil War lasted for about 3 years but these scenes were very common. The Republican Army soldiers looted the treasures and sometimes even the mummified remains in the churches and other places where they were kept.
4 Goofing with the dead
Here you can see some American soldiers playing with the skulls in the Colon cemetery in Havana. In the period of 1897-1898, the cemetery was dug up to disinter the bodies of sailors who died on the United States Navy battleship Maine. This was done to bring the bodies back to the United States and bury them in the Arlington National Cemetery.
