Tough one this. This photograph has 4 coffins and a skull, but it's more proto-goth than genuinely creepy.

…aaahh, that's better: Edouard Pernod Jnr, shortly after he drowned himself in the lake near Neuchatel in February 1880.

Do we how or why he chose to induce his own end? Aside from the fact that he drowned himself, that is.

Looks like after the ban to me, David. Where's the absinthe? Doesn't make it a less interesting photograph though.

Second, perhaps E. Pernod Jr was seeing if he would louche.

It would appear that both of the links work if you click them and when you reach the 'page not found' page, click on the address bar, then press enter. I'd guess it's some sort of protection to prevent hotlinking.
