Wow ~ Looks like somebody's having a bad day . . . Actually, this shocking photo is just some people learning how to apply bandages to an uninjured subject. Whatever scenario they are planning for, it looks like it's pretty severe. The only part not bandaged is the tip of his nose - I hope it's not a hot day!
The photo is part of a small group of images from the very large "Writer's Program of the Works Progress Administration," and these are listed as "Adult Education."
"Wow Photo Wednesday" celebrates photographs in the Denver Public Library's Digital Collections that have "The Wow Factor" and that highlight the myriad delightful nuggets in our database.
