Pictures of a firing squad - Photos and postcards of a firing squad

The pictures of a firing squad below come from old photographs and postcards. These are sad testimonies to how the government or party in power exercises its right over people. Also, please be aware, that although these pictures appear on vintage photos and postcards, firing squads are by no means a phenomenon of the past. These things happen even today, every single day, while you eat your dinner or check your email.
