This jail was under renovation, it looked like it’s guts had been spilled from the side..

Not sure if this junkie had attended the nearby music school, but he was an excellent pianist. It was sad to watch such wasted talent..


A real fake…

Shadow Walk

The pirate exhibition at the Minneapolis Natural History Museum featured the recovered wreck of the pirate ship Wydah. The ship was being used to transport slaves from West Africa to the Caribbean in the early 18th century. Hundreds of pieces of eight were found with the wreck of the 295 year old wreck, booty from all of the unfortunate vessels that were victimized by the pirates aboard the ship


This guy was purchased during the mummy craze of the 1920s after Tut was found. Mummies were dug up by grave robbers, stripped of their jewels and sold in the local markets to tourists. Amazing to imagine that on a visit to Egypt, one could buy mummified remains and ship them back home to display..
