Photo: Thomson, John, born 1837 - died 1921. A 'November effigy' being paraded through the street, c.1877. At the time this photograph was taken it was common practice in early November to parade effigies of unpopular public figures as well as Guy Fawkes. In his notes to the photograph, Adolphe Smith refers to the effigy shown as being a 'meaningless monstrosity' created purely for the purposes of entertainment and profit.

Photo Of The Day

CREDIT: Sim Chi Yin / VII / Courtesy United Photo Industries & Magnum Foundation. “Big Rain” (“da yu” in Mandarin), 21, a KTV lounge worker, decorated his basement room  with a happy display of balloons. He lives in room A12 of a basement beneath Beijing’s north Third Ring Road. Originally from Heilongjiang in China’s northeast, he’s been in Beijing for the past year. He sleeps in the day and wakes up around 7 or 8pm to do his hair at a salon and then grabs a cab to go to work. Giving only his surname Chen, he said: “I’m 1.8 m tall, weigh 120 jin (about 60kg), am male and interested in girls. What else do you want to know?” He was planning to move out. “It’s too humid here,” he grumbled.
