John Herzig has one heck of a collection!
Chris and I went down to Dover to the Toland-Herzig Funeral Home to meet with John and take some photos of his collection for my program on Funerals of the Rich & Famous and Chris's program Presidential Funerals.
It was so overwhelming!
He's got some great stuff. I took lots of pictures and am excited to add them to my program. (with a plug for his collection, of course!)
By the way, his funeral home was really beautiful. There was a gorgeous pond outside with music playing from outdoor speakers disguised as rocks. I've never seen anything like that and I thought it was really neat!
I think his hobby is really unique and something I know a lot of people don't "get" -- just like they don't "get" my fascination with cemeteries!
Here are some photos of the pond:
