taken in Falls River MA in the Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast. These are Lizzie Borden’s own books and have been preserved in this protective plastic in her bedroom upstairs in an in-wall glass doored bookcase.
There are photos on the top shelf of this bookcase taken of Lizzie back in the late 1800s and some examples of her handwriting in frames. There are a lot of reflections in the glass – and I am sure there is an explanation for these, but I found the Victorian woman standing to the left of the books interesting, especially since there is no corresponding photo or drawing like this one inside the book case or on the walls behind us. There is a strange figure that almost looks like a man in a kilt, and there were no tour guests behind me when I took this photo as they had all moved on to Abby and Andrew Borden’s bedroom at this point. Reflections can be interesting and strange. I have no explanation for these.
