Event description

Description

The term ‘mourning’ came to mean more than just grieving for the loss of a loved one; it comprised all the ways that the Victorians expressed that grief. During the Victorian Era, there was an extensive mourning culture created that employed elaborate dress, jewellery, funeral trappings, photographs and a myriad of commemorative items.

On Sunday, October 29 at 1 pm, the Oshawa Museum will discuss Mourning After: The Victorian Celebration of Death and Museum Ghost Stories! Explore the ways in which mourning was expressed; from funerals to clothing, post-mortem photography and cemeteries. This lecture provides an in-depth look at mourning from over a century ago and some of the paranormal experiences staff have had within the Museum homes.

Tickets are $10 per person and $5 for members of the Oshawa Historical Society. They can be purchased by calling Jill at 905-436-7624 x. 106 or online at Eventbrite.ca. Reservations are required. Tea is served promptly at 1 pm.
