Love all these old and often ‘colourised’ photos:
Excellent - loved them, will be checking out more. I’m sure I saw LITSL in one of them…
And that’s where it goes wrong…
@goatboy not so keen on the elephant hanging one.
Agree with you there ‘niki … it is an interesting (bizarre) photo tho’, if only that it highlights what total cretins some people can be
I found this informative article which recounts the full events around this grotesque incident and another, involving the electrocution of Topsy, as punishment for daring to become uncooperative with her slavemasters.
The town that hanged an elephant
A very sad but age old story of human cruelty, mob rule and the morbid ‘sheep mentality’ that goes with it.
Very disturbing but not at all surprising.
Hey give a heads up that it will take me to the Daily Fail. I try and avoid their site at all costs.
I play the article not the publisher but soz if it caused offence @intiniki
some interesting slideshows on youtube, just need to sift through the inevitible ‘these pictures will drop your jaw’ bullshit.
