20 Historic Places Or Events Captured From An Angle You’ve Never Seen Them From

Published 3 years ago

Thanks to the invention of the camera, people were able to capture some of the most important events of the last few centuries. Some of these pictures, like Charles Ebbets’ “Lunch atop a Skyscraper” or The Beatles crossing Abbey Road, for example, have become so recognizable, they’re considered to be rather iconic. But here’s the thing – a lot of these pictures have alternative versions that we don’t often get to see. However, things are about to get revealed.

Alternate Angles is an online community with over 134k members who regularly share pictures of historical places or events captured from an angle that we’re not used to seeing. Even if it may not sound like much at first, these ‘alternative angles’ often reveal the hidden sides of things that you normally wouldn’t get to see, and could even change the way you see certain things for good. Check out a collection of historical places and events captured from a different angle in the gallery below!

Aušrys Uptas

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
