This is truly shocking. Even taken in a 'vintage' context. It's not patronizing and unintentionally offensive as many of these old items are, it is scary. Unbelievable that lynching could be "humorously" portrayed.

El Clutter, una familia de Kansas cuyo asesinato en 1959 se hizo famoso por el libro de Truman Capote "A sangre fría "In Cold Blood"
One of my favourite books of all time : In Cold Blood. Truman was inspired to write his masterpiece after reading a newspaper article on the Clutter family, a Kansas family whose murder still raises speculation as to where the men hanged were innocent.

A penniless mother hides her face in shame after putting her children up for sale, Chicago, 1948. I actually read the whole story behind this picture, the mother never cared for her kids even after they grew up and found her, very sad story
August 4th, 1948; Chicago illinois; They're on the auction block. The parents of these children waged a losing battle against poverty. Now jobless and facing eviction from their near barren flat they eventually surrendered to their heartbreaking decision of auctioning off their kids. Photo shows the mother sobbing whilst children pose wonderingly on the step.

It is amazing to think that this was less than 100 years ago... Dorothy Day with her prison dress. On November 1917 Day went to prison for being one of forty women in front of the White House protesting women's exclusion from the electorate. And though we have come so far as a country, women still attack other women more than men could ever think of doing...
Catholic Worker crusader Dorothy Day (1897-1980) with her prison dress [covered with autographs!] On November 1917 Day went to prison for being one of forty women in front of the White House protesting women's exclusion from the electorate. Arriving at a rural workhouse, the women were roughly handled. The women responded with a hunger strike. Finally they were freed by presidential order.
