In the Asylum

“Cultivated corn all day twice in a row.  This is the second time I have went through it twice in a row


This is a very interesting picture.  I am not sure what is going on here.  Everyone is dressed very nice except for the man on the ground in the middle.  He is barefoot and raggedy.  If I had to guess, I would say that he might have been a member of the family in an asylum.  Here is a link to an interesting book written by a woman who faked her way into an insane asylum in 1887.  A very interesting read: http://digital.library.upenn.edu/women/bly/madhouse/madhouse.html
