Throwback Thursday: Snooze ya lose

Digging through the storage room one day, I discovered binders containing oodles of old photographs. From uniform fashion shows to group shots of the old Motor Corp volunteers, we’ve got tons of cool old photos that gave me a unique look into the organization’s past.

And then we have some other photos. The ones I can’t quite explain, but am all the more inclined to share. And thus, I bring it to you in our first of a new weekly series dubbed Throwback Thursday.

This week, we offer a Red Cross photo distributed by the Eastern Area chapter some time ago. It depicts the good ol’ “Flagellation Method.”

In the Early Ages, this method of striking a sleeping person with stinging nettles was considered helpful in waking them from a deep slumber. Later on, hands and wet clothes replaced the nettles. I imagine it was just as successful a method.

Nothing like a good whipping to start the day.
