Heath Robinson was mentioned in the same breath with Rube Goldberg on Mefi twice before, but the site they linked to is empty now. Maybe some lucky soul can make it to Liverpool to see his current exhibition.

To bring my refrences to E. M. Delafield's "Diary of a Provincial Lady" to a full circle...

Thanks for posting this! I've never seen anything by Watts before, and these links are just terrific. Thanks!

And then there's the weird world of John Anster Fitzgerald.
