Some call it 'Kiss of the Century'. This iconic photograph was taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt which appeared on the cover of Life magazine in 1945. Eisenstaedt took no notes or names the day he snapped the photo, hence the identity of the sailor and the pretty nurse intrigued many for decades. After 62 years, finally a guy named Glenn McDuffie took the claim. It's the most passionate kiss that swooned the entire world for a long time. Thanks to Eisenstaedt and hats off to Glenn McDuffie as well!
