This is the last photo of Hachiko, an Akita Inu dog whose sad story is known all over the world. The dog belonged to Professor Hidesaburo Ueno, who lived on the outskirts of Tokyo and taught at Imperial University in the early 20s of the last century. Every morning, a devoted four-legged friend accompanied the professor to the railway station and waited there for his return from work.
One day the professor did not return — he died of a heart attack. Hachiko, who continued to wait for the owner at the station until his death, became a symbol of devotion and loyalty.
Son is waiting for a gift from dad, 1929
In the 20-30s of the last century, an authoritarian approach to parenting was popularized in the United States. So, the child was supposed to do exactly what the adults told him. In case of disobedience, he was punished, and in case of obedience, he was encouraged. Parents were urged to adhere to the "carrot and stick" system, which allowed them to keep the child under control.
In the 40s, such principles of education were criticized in the works of the famous psychologist and psychoanalyst John Bowlby, who proposed building relationships with children on a sense of attachment.

Iranian woman before the Islamic Revolution, 1960
The Islamic Revolution of 1979 provoked a large-scale cultural shift that affected the life of the whole country — but especially the female half of the population. The country where a woman can be arrested now for the lack of a hijab, before the revolution, was very liberal in its views.
In the 1930s, the old Shah banned the wearing of veils, the police even received an order to forcibly remove women's hats. But in the early 80s, the tradition returned — the new government made the hijab a mandatory element of clothing for all Iranians.
The cats are waiting for the fishermen to return
This photo was taken in a Greek port in 1970. As you know, there are many stray cats living on the islands of Greece. The animals are protected by the state and charitable organizations. The warm climate, the abundance of food and the lack of total sterilization have led to the fact that cats in Greece have become almost more people — and residents seem to be satisfied with this.

Orphan boy got a new pair of shoes, 1944
The first orphanage was opened in the USA back in 1729. By 1850, there were already 56 institutions of this type in the country, and by 1900, 1000 orphanages were already under the care of the state, in which about 100 thousand orphans lived. The conditions of their detention were appalling, and in the early 1900s activists made demands to close orphanages, and send the pupils to host families.
Single picket at the White House, 1917. The inscription on the poster: "Mr. President, how long will women wait for freedom?"
The 19th Amendment gave American women the right to vote. The document was approved by Congress on June 2, 1919 and ratified on August 18, 1920. Women had to fight for this right for almost a hundred years.
Back in the early nineteenth century, American women began to organize themselves into groups, sign petitions and go to rallies with demands to grant them the right to vote. It was only in the late 1870s that the amendment was first introduced in Congress.

The beginning of the eruption of Mount St. Helens
On May 18, 1980, at 8 a.m., the eruption of Mount St. Helens in Washington State began. The earth shook with a force of 5.1 points. The earthquake was followed by the strongest landslide in the history of the United States. St. Helens spewed columns of gas, smoke, ash, and rock fragments into the air. Due to the increase in air temperature and pressure, the melting of the glacier began, which led to flooding. As a result of a natural cataclysm, 57 people died.
