A ruined hall, with cobwebs galore, a gothic mansion, a scene of death and decay, of neglect and ruin, a goth dream, perhaps the home of Victor or Victoria from the film Corpse Bride!

Specially drawn for “The Leisure Hour” by Herbert Railton

A kind of old hobgoblin hall,
Now somewhat fallen to decay,
With weather-stains upon the wall,

And stairways worn, and crazy doors,
And creaking and uneven floors,
And chimneys huge, and tiled and tall.

From the Prelude to Longfellow’s ‘Tales of a Wayside Inn’ (p. 401)

The image is signed Herbert Railton, 1904; the drawing was done just a few years before his death. It is out of cpoyright.
