Lou Gehrig, 1938

Lou Gehrig, the Iron Horse, played his entire 17-year career for the New York Yankees. In this black and white photograph, we see Lou at batting practice, in 1938 toward the end of his career. Gehrig retired in 1939 at the age of 36, having been stricken with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), now often called Lou Gehrig's Disease. During his career, he set several records, most famously for playing 2,130 consecutive games, a record that was unbroken for 56 years.

The Queen Mary Cruises Past the Statue of Liberty, 1960

The RMS Queen Mary, nearing the end of her career, cruises into New York Harbor past Lady Liberty.  The Mary herself was a familiar symbol of liberty, having served as a troop transport during World War II.  After the war, she was refitted for passenger service, and until the era of jet travel forced her into retirement in 1967, she and her sister ship, the Elizabeth, served as the Queens of transatlantic travel.
