!!!!!   Most of the photos we see of past famous names like John Kennedy or Elvis Presley are professional photos, hiding beneath layers of posing, manipulation and over exposure to the iconic imagery.
But here and there, real photos from their real lives do slip through, changing our view of these famous people of history, and giving us a more human aspect to examine.
Here are some great photos from the photos albums of very famous names:

John D. Rockefeller giving charity on his 84th birthday.

Young Bill Clinton with his saxophone.

Hilary Clinton in high school, sitting on the floor in the front of the photo.
