A few look like those cards that you would get after a freak show.

Then some are proof that crazy art pictures weren't invented in the 60's.

The rest are just different lol.

Jeebers... Seems like these photos come from a file labeled "The Case for Prohibition."

lol. Could very well be! Watch out for Mr. Booze!

I've seen some absolutely bizarre photos from the 1890s to the 1920s and it's really a window into the reality of the times. People always assume that Victorian people were stuffy and had no sense of humor, photos like these disprove that myth.

While looking at photo# 12 I couldn't help wonder what is worse.. the photo being real or the brainstorm to photoshop those two images together.

12 is obviously "Harlan Sanders -- The Early Years." It explains the entire later course of the future Colonel's life.

Number 9 is actually explicable too -- that's Ming The Panda, one of the most famous attractions in the London Zoo before the war. The kid is the son of the photographer, who brought him along to play with the panda while getting some pictures for Picture Post magazine.

I have a 16mm film clip of Ming ferociously attacking an Alsatian dog who was menacing Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret during a zoo visit that same summer.

She didn't *just* play football, she also did her bit to protect Their Royal Highnesses from the filthy Bosch.
