Stuck

By Big_Beavis  
Many thanks for the c and c on my last upload.

A colleague at work had some copies of old pictures (some from lantern slides). I've enhanced this one slightly, but have no idea of the age of the original.
These were stocks in a local town, where there is a street called Stocks Hill. As far as I can gather stocks weren't used in the UK after the 1870's

I can think of one or two folks, who a session in them, would bring home the need to accept the world for what it is and not their fairy tale idealWink

Great to study the art of development in old photos.
The black and whites are fascinating.

What a fun picture!
I have always thought it would be a good idea to bring back the stocks. Public humiliation would be good for some.
