Interesting quiz! You might wish to make it a bit more challenging, either by requiring the exact year of the photograph, or by cutting the time allowed way down. Loved the photos, though!

Way too much time, but interesting concept

I've cut the time down to three minutes, hopefully that might make things a bit more challenging. I was going to do it so that it requires the exact year of the photo but I thought that would be too difficult in the case of the photos of people. I might do it so that it requires the exact year for some and just the decade for the people? Thanks for the feedback!

I'd make it all by the year and get rid of Monroe, Capone, etc. It would make it more of a true history quiz if we had to guess when events happened, rather than when certain celebs were popular. A nice concept, however.

Okay, I've changed a few photographs and now you have to guess the year in which the event happened. I also added an extra column telling what the event in each photograph is. Hope you enjoy!

Love the new format! And again, great choice of photos!

Have you considered putting them in order of 'first to last'.

The Parks photo was taken in 1956, after segregated bus seating was outlawed. It was in 1955 when she was arrested and the boycot began.

Good idea, but the photos are very small and sometimes vague with regard to specific events. Definitely require an exact year, but provide better photos.

Seems much improved (but I second adhair, at least for the Berlin Wall photo). Thanks for the now-great quiz!
