Well, this is pretty ghastly.
I've been trying to figure out if old L. D. is a relative (we share the same last name), and I came across this. A photo of one very dead bear, and some grizzly old timers armed to the teeth.

Ghastly because you can't decide whether to shell out $300 for the print?

I assume this is the same L. Lindsley whose name is scratched on the rock below Chikamin Peak?  I was up there a week ago and saw the names, but they are getting pretty faint now.  The dates on the rock (1898) and the photo (1900) suggest it's the same person.

FWIW, I have a very similar photo taken around 1910 in Nanaimo, Vancouver Island, of my grandfather standing with a shotgun on a "heap" of dead bears.

What I found ghastly is the pictures for sale from the same guy.. concentration camp victims..WTF.

I sorta like the old time photograph with the hunters and the bear.  People hunt animals.. the photo was not gruesome in the least bit.

I have to admit...I was expecting something actually ghastly...I might have to look that word up and see what it means....

I wouldn't consider one rifle and a buck knife armed to the teeth myself either...

I'm fairly lost as to what is ghastly about this as well.  It all looks fairly normal to me.
