Three Skeletons

I was browsing Flickr the other day when I stumbled on the "Commons" section. This is basically a section for institions, such as archives and libraries, to post up the photos they hold in their records.

Looking at the one for the UK's National Archives, the first thing that caught my eye was this;

Clearly at some point in 1892 a gentleman thought of lining up a couple of skeletons and taking a photo, and then registered the photo with the Copyright office (because clearly you don't want anyone else to steal your skeleton snapshot). 

Have a nice evening everyone.


Wow, that is quite a photo. I never would have thought to do that.
