Prisoner 4100

Prisoner 4100, originally uploaded by The National Archives UK.

I came across this on Flickr and felt compelled to post it. This child was10 years old at the time of his arrest in 1872.

I wonder what his motivations were to steal the rabbits. We have no way of knowing. In any case, it's a powerful image.
