Something for Everyone?

Reflections: The American Funeral Mobile Museum
April 16-18, 2009
Oregon Funeral Directors Association Annual Convention
Salem Conference Center
200 Commercial St. SE
Salem, OR

Educational mobile museum showcasing a unique collection of funeral objects in a double-expandable exhibit trailer. From the cross-country funeral procession for Abraham Lincoln to the national outpouring of grief for Elvis Presley. Both interesting and somber. Unfortunately, photography was not allowed inside the trailer.

Interesting post. I never imagined such a museum actually existed.

Although being totally different, these are two gorgeous shots! Shame on this 'photos not allowed' thing!...
