I was so excited to have found all of these images.  This collection spans quite a bit of time, but the photos are all uniquely interesting. My favorite would have to be the lion pulling the children in the cart, that is awesome!  It is really neat to see the ingenuity of some people in the past.  I could not imagine being in or using a cart being pulled by some of these animals. I did of course, for reference, include a human pulled rickshaw 🙂 What is your favorite?  Please let me know and rate the article at the bottom!

Auction & WHAT????

Auction & WHAT????

I can not imagine the world ever actually being this way. This has been gong on for hundreds of years, slavery and selling slaves goes on today, but I just cannot imagine it being done so publicly!  “Stop by the auction house and pick up some dishes and a slave”, we are truly fallen!  People all over the world, RIGHT NOW, are in slavery! It is so sad and I just cannot imagine that there are people in the world who would value a human life so little!  I meant to simply just share an old photo, but then I got to thinking of the people who went through those doors and it really saddened me and made me pretty upset!!  So glad this is not the country we are anymore!
