Above a stop off in Palermo……I think, the Capuchin Catacombs originally for friars it became a bit of a status symbol in future generations to be entombed in the catacombs.
The rest of the photographs in this post I don’t know where they were taken. I assume they are all from the same trip.
Below there’s only one name visible on any of the ships and it’s still unreadable.
Above the Politeama Theatre in Palermo which I think confirms the location of the catacombs in the first photograph. It’s not the sharpest photograph but I included it for the location confirmation and also it looks like scaffolding on the right of the building, the final parts were completed in 1891. Could this be a rough date of the trip?
The sun sets on the trip which must have been some adventure back when the world was a bigger place. Must have cost a few quid back then too.
