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.

Following up the Tolstoy picture the first successful colour photographs were the Autochrome system. They weren't colourised B&W pictures but genuine colour images starting from the first decade of the 20th century...beautiful subtle tones...
