The Little Girl in the Rum Keg. This child died on the return trip from England, sometime in the mid 1700s. At that time, if you died at sea, you were either buried at sea or stored in a container of alcohol spirits. So, the only way her father could get her body home was to have the body sealed in a keg of rum. ∞

Buried under a Bridge in Paris: The Misfit Mausoleums of Montmartre; Cemetière de Montmartre is a very particular sort of misfit in the Parisian urban landscape. The clunky industrial blue iron bridge and the intricately carved stone mausoleums from another era are like mismatched puzzle pieces trying to fit together in this evolving city. But of course, the cemetery was here first, dating all the way back to the French revolution when it was first used as a makeshift mass grave.
