Found this and thought of your great blog. We’re all big fans here at the museum.
TEN WAYS TO COMMIT SUICIDE
Wearing thin shoes and stockings and insufficient clothing in cold and rainy weather ; leading a lazy, excited theater-going, dancing life ; sleeping on feathers in a 7 by 9 room ; eating hot, stimulating food, too fast and a great deal too much of it at improper times ; beginning with tea and coffee in childhood and adding tobacco and spirits in due time ; marrying in haste and living in continual ferment thereafter ; following unhealthy occupations to make money ; taking bitters and confections and gormandizing between meals ; giving way to fits of passion, or keeping in perpetual worry ; going to bed at midnight and getting up at noon, and eating when you catch it. To which may be added a recipe for killing children ; paregorics, cordials, candy and rich cake ; and when they are made sick thereby, mercury, tartar-emetic, castor oil and sulphur.
found in the collection of the Dufferin County Museum & Archives. Source: Orangeville Sun, 1876.

Part of a collection of old family photographs that were found in my grandmother’s basement. This is my great great grandmother. I’m assuming this photo is from the mid to late 1800s. It looks like a painting, right?
