I just love this photo. The quality may not be that good, but the content is what is exceptional.
I do not have any history on this photo, therefore I am unsure of what country this was taken in.
I am guessing India by the style of clothing.

During the late 19th and early 20th century, the few laws prohibiting child labor were moderate and rarely enforced.
In North Carolina, the age limit was 13 for employment in factories such as mills, and children under 18 were allowed to work up to a shocking 66 hours per week! Mill owners had to “knowingly and willfully” break these laws before they could be convicted.
This animated gif meme has been titled “Last days of the Finnish presidents term and her husband goes and……” but I checked on line because frankly, I have no clue as to who the President of Finland is.

This is a superb and magnificent letter written from a former slave to his former master in a response to a request to return as a “free” man and employee, no longer as a slave. When I reached the apex of the letter, which is a request of “some proof that you were disposed to treat us justly and kindly”, I laughed out loud with rejoice and respect for the writer’s forethought to do so – in addition to being a passive way of humiliating the former slave owner.
When a friend sent me this link, I thought it was a joke. I was wrong.
The Susan G. Komen Foundation, which has found itself in the center of a storm over abortion this week after cutting off Planned Parenthood then reversing their decision, may have just stepped into another emotional policy debate: guns.
A Seattle-area company, Discount Gun Sales, is advertising a “Walther P-22 Hope Edition.”
The company says on its website:
This is one of the BEST satirical political photoshopped images of the Republican primaries I have seen yet!
Thanks to Creative Endeavors, The Home of BoxcarOkie for posting this image.
This is the store front above a The Library Bar and Grill in downtown Albuquerque. They have several books “punned” with types of liquor.
