It's a lazy, end-of-summer, holiday week, and that means...reruns! I'll be revisiting some of my personal favorite posts here this week.
Today, go back to Coney Island's World in Wax Musee. Costa Mantis' full-color photos of this ghoulish treasure of lost Coney Island cannot be missed. You'll see Hickman the Fox dismembering little Marion Parker in a bathtub! Husband-killing seductress Ruth Snyder of Double Indemnity infamy! And Lina Madina, the baby who gave birth to a baby.
They're here, they're real, they're not alive!
