One of the most famous photograph of Abraham Lincoln in 1860. But only his head was real in the picture as the body belongs to someone called John Calhoun.

Re: Secrets of Famous Photos

See the difference between these 2 photos? The guy sitting on the right was General Francis Blair, who was apparently added only later (1865).

The guy on the left quarreled with Mao Ze Dong and his picture was removed (1936).

Re: Secrets of Famous Photos

The guy missing seems to be called Goebbels in this photograph taken with Hitler. Reason is unknown (1937).

Benito Mussolini sitting on a horse. I guess sitting on a horse by yourself - Cool! Sitting on a horse held by a handler - Not so Cool. (1942).

Re: Secrets of Famous Photos

The guy in the center is Carlos Franco, who apparently quarreled with Fidel Castro after Fidel supported the entry of Soviet troops in Czech Republic (1968). Thus he disappeared from the photo.

Re: Secrets of Famous Photos

This photographer, John Filo, won the Pulitzer Prize but was manipulated for the cover of the Life magazine to remove the rear fence. Don’t ask me why.

Re: Secrets of Famous Photos

This is a photograph of the negotiations between Chancellor Willy Brandt of Germany and Leonid Brezhnev.

Rumored has it that all of them were rather drunk during the meeting. You can see the disappearing wine bottles in the German press compared to the Soviet press on the top.

Re: Secrets of Famous Photos

The ‘gang of four’, a group of Chinese Communist Party leaders were sacked and arrested in 1976 after the death of Mao Zedong. Thus explains their disappearance from the photo.
