fixing a broken heart c1987 – photographer not stated

Toronto. Past president Les Jones recently dropped me an email showing this link on Bored Panda titled, “50 Interesting Historical Photos That Might Change Your Perspective On The Past“. The photos are accompanied with a text commentary and date.

Take a look and think of how people will react to them in 50 or 100 years from now. The comments (open them) are interesting too.

As to the photo of a heart transplant in 1987, do you remember hearing about the FIRST heart transplant? “Christiaan Barnard with his team, performed the world’s first human-to-human heart transplant operation on 3 December 1967. It was a major historical event and a significant breakthrough for medical science.”.

In the 1987 photo, the greenish tinge is likely due to using florescent lighting on film not balanced for that particular light spectrum.
