A brief history of the noose

Interesting story from the Toronto Star on the history of hanging as well as the abolishment of it in Canada.   

On the morning of the execution, the two murderers' hangman arrived at the Don Jail early and watched the men surreptitiously from a hidden window to gauge their structure, height and weight.
