Photographs from the archives have a special value to them. They often allow us to peer directly into the past and gain some sense of how things really were in a time long before we were born. Some of them are so startling or fascinating that you can’t help but think to yourself "Is this actually real?"

Sophia Loren and Jayne Mansfield, 1957.
