Genuine FAUX Cabinet Cards

 My sister is spiffying up display cabinets in the university science building she manages. She's very good with arranging curiosities and artifacts.

Dr. Charles Bennett:

In medical school in Milwaukee, circa 1899:
"Alas!  Poor Yorick!" (Shakespeare ref)

Here's a 3-minute video flip-thru if you want to see them.
