We continue our journey through some of the image archives that make their content available via Flickr Commons, arriving in France, and more specifically at the archives of the University de Caen Base-Normandie. Our theme image this week comes from a series of courtroom photographs taken during an early twentieth century trial relating to the affair of the Bonnet-Rouge. You don't need to worry too much about the affair itself - there is an article about it in the French edition of Wikipedia if you are interested - but you might like to follow the legal theme for Sepia Saturday 262 (post you posts on or around Saturday 17th January 2015). Alternatively you might want to look at old photographs with writing on them or, indeed, any other theme twist on the image. Post your post, add a link to the Linky List below and review the evidence from other Sepia Saturday participants.
But before you reach your verdict, why not take a look and see what lies ahead for the rest of the month.
263 : Old adverts, horses, carts, strange products
264 : Coastline, aerial photographs, looking down on things
Such things are for the future, for the moment ladies and gentlemen of the sepia jury, consider your verdict on Sepia Saturday 262.
I have a postcard with writing on the picture side that led me on an interesting research journey.

A bit late, but just made it to the bar on Saturday.
I have a suitable image that I wish was not so appropriate for this week. Musical but not musical.
It's a bit late but I have an uncommon courthouse postcard.
