Default Old Photos - #25 Astounds me

http://atchuup.com/rare-historical-photos/

I have seen pictures of redwood trees but picture # 25 astounds me as to the size of these trees and to think back when these guys did this manually.

Some of these photos should bring back some memories for you old folks.

The one of Dr. Porsche and Hitler gets me. I know the history there but see the irony in the picture vs today. In the picture they are looking over the model image of the first "Peoples Car" which has to be the most recognized, and mass produced, vehicle in the world.

While people tend to only remember his more famous cars they also forget his was responsible for some of the most feared tanks in the war.

How did they get those all of those little 2 foot tall midgets together for picture #25 - were they from the circus?
