I'd always heard that the sphinx's nose was shot off during WII; if this is from 1850, it makes that story just another legend.
Harvey Mushman...pitted next to him and his buddy Malcolm Smith at the two-day ISDT (International Six Day Trials) qualifiers at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas back in '73 & 74. He was a serious racer. Didn't come there for a "photo op"...he was there to kick some ass on his 400 Husqvarna (same scooter I rode back then). He deserved the "King of Cool" title for pulling off the Hollywood thing but staying real. And it wasn't until after he died that anyone found out he had been anonymously funding a couple of homes for boys for many years. Including the one he grew up in. Cool is as cool does.
Interior by Nudie Cohn? I think I see his sign in the front window.
Yep. Horse shoe gas pedal, pistol door handle..
Some people blame Napolean, but it was actually an Islamic Sheik who defaced it in the 13th century because he felt it violated certain laws of Islam.
Most were taken with large format up to 8x10 negatives, Kodak made the best film in its day.
You are right on Indy Big John and the other man in the photo appears to be (although some of his face is now shown) Dale Swanson of Harlan, Iowa. Swanson later built a pair of '39 Ford coupes for Lund #55 and Johnny Beauchamp #5 and they ran at the Playland Park track in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Swanson later built the '59 Ford Thunderbird that Beauchamp drove in the first Daytona 500 and finished second to Lee Petty.
A very young M.M.. Note the deformed extra toe on her left foot which she had corrected ASAP after the start of her fame.
According popular legends, the "honour" corresponds to Napoleon army but back in 1737 Frederic L. Norden made some sphinx's sketches, published in 1755, showing her noseless!
The nose was destroye using two big cissels and according the egipcian historian al-Maqrizi (s. XV), Muhammad Sa'imal-Dahr, a suffist Muslin, was the responsible, to prevent the popular adoration.
