The Palace of Curiosities

Mr OxleyI’ve spent so much time during the last three months sitting at my desk drawing men in top hats, so what do I do now that my contribution to the Waterton comic is finished and I can get out to social events again?

This is Mr Oxley, proprietor of the Palace of Curiosities, a Victorian Traveling Sideshow that has rolled into town as part of the celebrations to mark the centenary of the death of Charles Waterton 150 years ago.

To rival Squire Waterton’s¬†Nondescript, John Bull and the National Debt and the Noctifer, Mr Oxley is showcasing a¬†‘completely genuine’ mermaid, mummies and a grisly selection of Grand Guignol horrors.
