Pictures...

These are just a few pictures of what the courthouse and trial day might of been like in Maycomb.
  • The picture of the courthouse is somewhat what they described in the book as victorian and 2 stories..."The Maycomb County courthouse was early Victorian" pg 162
  • The pictures inside the courthouse show the segregation that went on inside during the trial as well as the few women that were present..."There were few women and children among them" pg 162..."The black people surged upstairs" pg 164
  • I put the picture of the Roman Carnival on here(last picture) because Miss Maudie says watching someone on trial for his life is like attending a Roman Carnival...As Miss Maudie says, " 't's morbid, watching a poor devil on trial for his life. Look at all these folks, it's like a Roman Carnival." pg 159

The pictures you posted really looked like how i would picture them when i was reading. You can really see the segregation and the hatred between the two classes. It really shows you how much society has changed and our outlooks on people. I am surprised the few women showed were even allowed in the courthouse.
