Execution was a public spectacle; free entertainment for the masses. Vendors sold hot potatoes, fruit and gingerbreads, and peddled gin. Life was cheap in an age where diseases raged and life expectancy was short. So frequent were the tortures and punishments, the exact number of victims will never be known.

It’s frightening that we still haven’t come out of the dark ages in many places!
Love the picture collage. Some interesting shots here and I love the colors of the masks. Enjoy your weekend!
