#7 - 1953.06-Colour

The unknown between Kaanga & Blondie is Heckle and Jeckle #12 (July 1953) https://www.comics.org/issue/248650/cover/4/

Unknown Men comic is probably Young Men #22 (August 1953) https://www.comics.org/issue/10724/cover/4/

#15 - 1956-Summer stand

Not an identification, but the sepia tones and graininess made me think this was a 1920s photo from Egypt. "Here archeologists examine printings of ancient heiroglyphs..."  ;)
