From the Feb. 13 1956 feature “What I like about living in SAN FRANCISCO” written and photographed by LIFE staff photographer Nat Farbman. According to LIFE, Farbman has traveled around the world and lived in glamourous cities like Paris, but he is always drawn back to his hometown of San Francisco.This image ran in the essay with the following caption: “Five minutes from downtown quiet residential backwaters like Pacific Heights look out over the bay.” (📷Nat Farbman—The LIFE Picture Collection/Getty Images)

80 years ago today, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was assassinated. This iconic photo of Gandhi at his spinning wheel was shot by the legendary Margaret Bourke-White in 1946. In typed notes that accompanied Bourke-White’s film when it was sent from India to LIFE’s New York offices in the spring of 1946, the significance of the simple spinning wheel in the photo is made abundantly clear: ____

“[Gandhi] spins every day for 1 hr. beginning usually at 4. All members of his ashram must spin. He and his followers encourage everyone to spin. Even M. B-W was encouraged to lay [aside] her camera to spin… . When I remarked that both photography and spinning were handicrafts, they told me seriously, "The greater of the 2 is spinning.” Spinning is raised to the heights almost of a religion with Gandhi and his followers. The spinning wheel is sort of an Ikon to them. Spinning is a cure all, and is spoken of in terms of the highest poetry.“ (Margaret Bourke-White—The LIFE Picture Collection/Getty Images) #LIFElegends #Gandhi #MargaretBourkeWhite

LIFE legend Zsa Zsa Gabor was born 101 years ago today on Feb. 6, 1917 in Budapest, Austria-Hungary. She is pictured here in a photo that was featured in the July 14, 1961 feature story “Big Names Hit the Barns.” The essay focused on big stars working in summer stock theater. According to LIFE, “Outside Warren, Ohio, Zsa Zsa takes a breezy stroll in stage getup of pink and chiffon. "It’s the first time I’ve been in stock,” admits Zsa Zsa. “Not only that but I never was on the legitimate stage before. It terrifies me.” (Nina Leen—The LIFE Picture Collection/Getty Images) #LIFElegends #ZsaZsa

1936: Florence Thomson, 32, is pictured with one of her children in Watsonville, California. It's actually an out-take from a photo session that created the iconic "Migrant Mother" image. Mrs. Thomson was born in 1903 to two displaced Native American Cherokees in what is now modern-day Oklahoma. She moved to California with her then-husband and had six children. The impromptu photo session in 1936 came about when the photographer, Dorothea Lange, encountered the family at the roadside after their car had broken down. Mrs. Watson had 10 children in all.

1949: The name Stanley Kubrick is synonymous with Hollywood, having directed no less than 13 huge films (A Clockwork Orange, the Shining and 2001: A Space Odyssey to name but a few), but the famous director actually started out as an apprentice photographer at Look magazine. This opportunity came about as a result of submitting his work to the magazine. This photo was taken as part of a series entitled "Chicago - City of Extremes".
