    Monthly Melodrama from Penny Dreadful at Shades of the Departed

    Hold on to your hats, dear Readers, The Family Curator, will be writing a new monthly column at Shades of the Departed beginning this weekend, Saturday, March 7 under the nom de plume of her alter ego, Penelope Dreadful.

    Close your eyes and imagine a time when mustachioed villains lurked around every corner. . . when a young girl's fate might be tied to a train track. . . when a handsome young suitor's guileless honesty could lure him away from protecting his beloved. . .

    These will be the days brought to you in living black and white on the pages of Shades and every month. Penelope Dreadful will be burning the midnight oil to bring you what-may-have-been-true stories behind the Fantastic Photographs in the collection of Shades' footnoteMaven. You will laugh, you will cry, you will most certainly groan and be amazed at Penelope's skill in winding a twisting tale of love, suspense, mystery, mayhem, jealousy, suspicion, and all the rest.

    Don't miss the first installment of Penelope Dreadful: The Story Behind the Photograph, "All That He Needed," Saturday, March 7 at Shades of the Departed.
