Episode 46: The Paris Morgue Mini Morbid

2019-02-13 | 🔗
Alaina's Mini Morbid takes a walk through the old Paris Morgue where dead bodies were put on display for the public to identify. This wasn't always about the macabre task of identifying the recently deceased though. It became theater. It became a place to see and be seen. Dress in your finest duds and gander at some bloated corpses because this place was happening.Sources:https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/paris-morgue-public-viewinghttps://hauntedpalaceblog.wordpress.com/2018/12/07/the-paris-morgue-dark-tourism-in-the-19th-century/https://www.thecrimson.com/article/1885/2/25/a-description-of-the-paris-morgue/
