Staged Execution

Unusual, large cabinet photo of a mock beheading of a young woman. Dated July 21st 1890 on the back, with the name Myra R. Wonderly and the address Grand Rapids, Michigan also inscribed. I presume that this is a rehearsal for some play - but it is still a very odd image and a little disconcerting. Note that one of the players has hung his or her umbrella on the wire fence behind the scene.
