TWO WOMEN WITH BOUND FEET WORKING A STONE GRINDING GRIST MILL in OLD CHINA (10)

Comment #4 below makes a better caption than anything I could say about the above photo. Please drop down and read what ralphrepo has to say. Thanks.

 

Here.... have a look under the wrappings : www.flickr.com/photos/24443965@N08/3461349265/in/set-7215...

 

The gruesome details of how the feet were actually crushed are found in the caption of this photo : www.flickr.com/photos/24443965@N08/3462167744/in/set-7215...

The above image is from a group of original 1895-1935 glass lantern slides depicting scenes and people in pre-WW2 China. With only a few exceptions, the size of the slides is 3 1/4 inches x 4 inches, with the centered image being smaller depending on the size of the border matte. I have cropped away the matte for most of these flickr posts. Enjoy....
