This is an original press photo. Bullfighting.

Bullfighting (also known as tauromachia, from Greek: ?????????? "bull-fight"; Spanish: toreo, IPA: [to'reo]; Portuguese: tourada, IPA: [to??að?]) is a traditional spectacle of Spain, Portugal, southern France and some Latin American countries (Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, Peru and Ecuador), in which one or more bulls are baited in a bullring for sport and entertainment. It is often called a blood sport by its detractors but followers of the spectacle regard it as a fine art and not a sport as there are no elements of competition in the proceedings. In Portugal it is illegal to kill a bull in the arena, so it is removed and slaughtered in the pens as fighting bulls can only be used once. A non-lethal variant stemming from Portuguese influence is also practised on the Tanzanian island of Pemba (Wikipedia)Photo measures 10 x 8.25inches. Photo is dated --none.
