The Last Known Photos Taken Of 20 Legendary Historical Figures

 

Since the invention of photography, people have been entranced by images of famous people. It’s engrossing to see a recognizable person memorialized – and what’s more fascinating than seeing the last photos of historical figures? They bring the past to life in a way that text alone simply can’t match.

Some of these photographs are absolutely chilling. Take the last photo of Hitler – it’s dated just days before his suicide. A final image of Diana, Princess of Wales shows her hiding from the camera in the backseat of her car shortly before her fatal accident. And then there are the last photos of presidents. Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, John F. Kennedy, and Franklin D. Roosevelt all appeared on film shortly before passing away.

These last photographs of historical figures capture fleeting moments in time, from the famous to the seemingly insignificant.
