This Week in 1935: January 13-19

A few choice news stories that appeared in The Times this week in 1935…

13-19 January:

A quiet week of news with just two items of possible interest. A nine-year-old girl was taken to court charged with shooting and killing her seventeen-year-old brother. The evidence brought forward suggested that the gun had gone off accidentally and, after a wordy warning from the judge about the dangers of children playing with guns, the girl was released. On a lighter note the London Zoo announced some new members to its bizarre family; a collection of chameleons. People flocked to see the new attraction.
