Alexander Bassano

Mamie Whittaker by Bassano 1910
I came across these amazing portraits, they are beautiful examples of the fashion, style of photography of the era. 

Alexander Bassano (10 May 1829 – 21 October 1913) was the leading high society portrait photographer in Victorian London.

Many glass plates from the Bassano Studios, including some by Alexander Bassano, are held in the National Portrait Gallery, London. The Museum of 

London holds a large number of the fashion-related plates.

Have a look at these beauties, Bassano definitely captured something special in these portraits!

The Curio Emporium

This a great a find for you lovers of weird curios, or collectors of the strange, beautiful and disgusting! A great variety of pinned insects, displays, specimens, skulls mounted or displayed beautifully, and all for very reasonable pricing!
Even better to top it all off, the site claims:

"All Insects, Animals & Specimens are legally obtained by natural death. "

Yay! Here are a few examples, they do sell out quite fast, so check em out! ^_^
