Description

"Cockfight arena" From "Darkroom Soldier": "Cockfight Crowd. As Hill wrote to Martha, spectators at this traditional Filipino blood sport could sit and watch and bet on the 'rough, fast and bloody' battle in the dirt circle below. With spurs 'about two and one half inches long, pointed, and razor sharp on the upper edge,' the two roosters fight until one is killed, maimed, wounded, or the other retreats." ("Darkroom Soldier" caption authored by George Venn)
