For a number of years one of my favorite blogs has been Misc. Tidings of Yore, a time machine of sorts which delves into newspaper archives to bring its readers a glimpse of the often bizarre, unusual and morbid stories of the past.

Many thanks to my dear friend, The Dead Bell, for allowing me to share this with you, Dear Readers. No doubt, you’ll love all her endeavors:
The Dead Bell – featuring cemetery architecture, mourning customs, mortuary history, & the micro-histories of the interred.
