Pride in Our Past Volunteer at PWDRO

Via Flickr:
A volunteer for the Pride in Our Past project researching the old leather bound 1920’s court records that are providing us with windows into an evocative & tragic past. We uncover the tale of two men, Francis & William, who are hauled before the local magistrate in early Aug. 1924 accused of committing an Act of Gross Indecency, they plead not guilty & the case is adjourned, once more they are hauled into court & again it’s adjourned but a week later Francis is found dead! The case against William is dismissed.
