Pictures, they surely hold a power which can make us travel back in time, leaving us filled with nostalgia. From Putin's childhood to The Beatles last concert, or Bill Gates in his childhood with some another big personality. Pictures have held on to some truly great memories. Surely, the times have now changed in the digital world, as technology has made photography relatively easier, but this wasn't the case when the cameras weren't easily available, as every picture was as precious as a dime, and cameras were as rare as hen's teeth. 

So, we bring you a collection of the most historic photographs of celebrities and other famous personalities that we're sure you have heard of, so wait and be thrilled as these are the most surprising retro memories. We would like to let the pictures do the talking, as all of these photographs are equally as memorable as another, and can't be compared in today's world. Have a look and get amazed!
