  2. Unfortunately, the top photo could not be from 1914 (likely a typo for 1941): look at the cars in the background and a child is holding a sign for "America First," an organization (of pro-fascist tendencies led by Charles Lindbergh) ostensibly meant to lobby the US citizenry to not join WWII, and especially not on the side of the Allies.

  3. Likewise, the last 2 photos could not possibly be from 1955. Far earlier.
