"Every man owes something to the world"

Thomas Alva Edison is famously known for his inventions that changed the world, like the light bulb, the phonograph, and the motion picture camera. But did you know that when he was only twelve years old, he saved a little boy from getting hit by a train?

A touch of Sharpy


"This is my niece, Carrie Ann Brown, when she was about 19 months old. I'm the family historian, and when my brother passed, I found this photo in his belongings and wanted to save a digital copy of it."

Sharpy is a feature allowing you to unblur grainy or lower-quality photos – try it yourself!

These young nurses sure seem to enjoy their milkshake. After a long night shift, they deserve a sweet morning treat!

Practically winners

"In this photo, you can see a welcome-home parade for the 1956 Boys Basketball Team of Edwardsville, Illinois. The team finished second that year. I pulled the photo from the yearbook to use in a film I'm helping create to honor the team."
