 Edwin Booth's medialion

Edwin Booth's medialion

From the exhibit label: "In the play, Hamlet refers to a portrait of his father, whose murder precipitates the story. Booth followed the tradition of wearing the portrait as a miniature on a chain. inside his locket is a photograph of his own father, English actor Junius Brutus Booth, in street clothes." I accidentally referred to Edwin Booth's father as "Julius" in the episode.
