Incredible work.  I can hardly wait to see how it all turns out.

Simon - it’s actually a photo of Boris Karloff made up for the movies, but I am not entirely sure what role he was supposed to be playing.  He’s got a bolt through his neck, so I assumed it was Dracula.  Oh - wait - I see what you’re getting at.  Count Dracula was the creator, wasn’t he????

Bela Lagosi played Dracula, Boris played the Monster created by Dr. Victor Frankenstein.  The bolts are for connecting the dead body to a high voltage source in order to jump start the nervous system.

Dracula was the vampire, as immortalised (pun intended) by Bram Stoker
The creature was the construct made by Viktor Frankenstein from pieces of various corpses and written of by Mary Shelley

Odd how one’s memory gets jumbled up with these things.  Thanks guys - but I don’t suppose that I’ll remember!

I do know that Whitby has adopted the story - and has lots of museums and shops selling stuff - because somebody or other connected with it landed there from the Continent.

Indeed, in the book Dracula, the ship taking the vampire to England was blown into Whitby with the crew all dead.

Probably influenced by the real-life story of the Marie Celeste, I suppose.

Now that is a good question ... personally with nothing more than gut-feeling I’d put the Marie Celeste incident after the writing of Dracula.  Hmmm, time to flex my Google-fu ... wink

Let’s see ... Mary Celeste lost in 1872.  Dracula published 1897.  I thought the Celeste was a bit later than that, but ... having a vampire trying to eat your face off is as good a reason as any to abandon ship ... wink

LOL.  Darn good reason!!!  Thanks for the info.  The author might have been influenced, then.

Back at the Bridal Suite, on the other side of the party wall I have erected a stairwell.  It was a very complex build and I hope to get on quicker now that it’s done.

LOL.  I guess that you clicked on the wrong space, Moom.blue!  Don’t worry about it - we’ve all been there.

Hrrrmmmm…. I thought it was Karloff from “The Black Cat”.
As always Skipper, beautiful work. Will this be an addition to the bridal suite or a replacement?
I loved the one already finished and can hardly await the release of the “update”

Again thankye mate.
Cheers
