The practice of taking photos of the deceased was common among freemasons. I could see a very old photo of a Grand Master of the order, who arrived in Uruguay with the Garibaldi mercenaries,and remained in the country. He is sitting on a wooden armchair, looking very much alive and exhibiting a number of mason symbols. Eerie.

I’m not surprised by any of it. Arsenic was taken by many women because it caused their skin to look translucent.

I love all Victorian trivia. They were brilliant when it came to engineering, bridges etc. There were hard times for many people. We are lucky to have all mod cons.
