This may seem strange to many of you, but up until the 1900's any coroner held the right to send a dead body to the closest pub and the owner was obliged to store in his cool celler among the beer kegs until an inquest could be held. So pubs in history often doubled as undertakers and this can still be seen here in ireland, where it would not be unusual to see funeral wreaths in pub windows alongside the other pub paraphernalia. This one is in Wexford my home town..

In the Wexford Opera Festival... photo essay.
