Not Quite PC

I love London't Victorian cemeteries and the way they open a window into a different time. I can't imagine anyone responding kindly to being called "Jolly Jumbo" these days, dying at 52 might well have been linked. His wife, if that's who she was (sister?) as she is listed as being the wife of Sol Goodman by contrast lived to the grand old age of 89. The monument places them firmly in the upper middle class, through its size and prominence. Plus I rather like the photograph.

Any relation to Bernie?

Maybe Anne's second husband was Mr Goodman, but since she'd already made arrangements in the days of being Jolly Jumbo's wife she got buried there, Mr Goodman going on to marry again... who knows!? I like the picture too!
