Monstrous Monday 1

Two images from The Purple Terror, a short story about a man-eating plant in Meso-America by a very interesting writer, now largely forgotten, Fred M White. The story appeared in 1899 in The Strand. There's a surprisingly big sub-genre of killer plant stories, including one written by children's author Edith Nesbit (who had a nice sideline in horror stories) and Sapper, of Bulldog Drummond fame.
