2014.07W.55

This week Sepia Saturday bloggers are posting criminals of all times. First I found the photo below of George Davey who was convicted for stealing two rabbits. He got one month’s hard labor for that.

    Mabel Smith could play the part of Eliza Doolittle.

    It breaks your heart looking at photos like those. And make you wonder how far you would go if you were starving.

    Those photos are amusing, although their deeds were not.

    Poor sad lad. He was probably a hungry boy! I like how you found a couple other photos with their boards of shame!

    Fantastic photos. Well done. A picture says a thousand words and all that.

    You don’t specify a date for that first photograph, but that boy seems to have got off relatively lightly, compared to one in my post who was transported to Australia for 10 years for stealing some cotton back in 1840!

    That first photo is rather sad isn’t it. Poor kid!
