  • A Flattering Etching Of Mrs. Pearcey At Her Trial

    Beats the hell out of the standard depiction of the woman....the one that makes her look like the Wicked Witch of The West. I think she looks attractive in this one.

    She was quite a good looking woman. It's the ghastly Madame Tussauds waxwork people remember her by.

      Thanks for that, Rob.....I recall you mentioning something years ago about how the woman didn't resemble the Tussaud's waxwork.

        Thanks. I have often wondered what she really was like. Looks quite mild and inoffensive ......

          She was described as beautiful but I could never imagine the real woman. She should have been sent to Broadmoor because I think she was at least temporarily insane.
