Joseph Janney Steinmetz was a world-renowned commercial photographer whose images appeared in such publications as the Saturday Evening Post, Life, Look, Time, Holiday, Collier's, and Town & Country. His work has been referred to as "an American social history," which documented diverse scenes of American life from affluent northeasterners to middle-class Floridians. Steinmetz moved from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Sarasota, Florida in 1941. (via State Archives of Florida, Florida Memory)

Photos of Elizabeth Taylor in Iran, 1976

In 1976 Elizabeth Taylor visited Iran for the first and only time. Accompanying her was Firooz Zahedi, a recent art school graduate just learning his craft, who has since gone on to become a successful Hollywood photographer.

Old Photos of The Barclays Center Area in The Early 1900s

Here's a look back at that bygone era long before Barclays Center took over the area around Atlantic Avenue and Flatbush. These photos from the early 1900s show the Brooklyn neighborhood as a hub of activity, with the subway lines being constructed and the area getting built from the ground up. Click through for a look at the Barclays intersection before Barclays existed, in the early 1900s.

Photos from the '70s Gay Rights Protests

In 1969, the New York Stonewall riots ignited a fire under the LGBT rights movement. Not only were LGBT citizens now demanding a more open and public position in society, but that visibility also led to a lot of backlash from the conservative side.

That being said, the 1970s saw a lot of traction, momentum, and gains in the fight for equality. For example, the work of Evelyn Hooker forced the American Psychiatric Association to remove homosexuality from their list of mental disorders in 1973. And in 1977 Harvey Milk, an openly gay activist, was elected to the Board of Supervisors in San Francisco. Those are just a few examples, and the below photos represent moments from those protests that helped pave the road to equality.
