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.
