This lovely piece of work comes to us from Amanda. She tells me this marker is inside a church in England. Fascinating. I'm pretty sure if this was in a church in the U.S. there would be a big black censored box involved.


  1. I'm wondering if Dorothy's affectionate sister, Catharine over expressed herself, in hopes that the males in the area would assume sisters were VERY alike.


  2. Wardrobe malfunction. Or maybe an advocate of breast-feeding.

  3. Actually, that's a pretty standard memorial type in England. You'll find something like that in most of the bigger churches, especially memorials for people who died 1790 - 1850.

    Now I'll just go back to history geekdom...

  4. Am I the only one who thinks she had work done?

    ...I mean, 'cuz of the color variation. ...Yeah.
