Merry Christmas! Today’s the last day to enter the Mini Minority Monsters give away over on FacebookTumblr or Twitter, good luck everyone!

I thought I’d overdone older Jefferson’s hands but then I look down at my own and they’re already covered in veins so who knows what they’ll look like by the time I’m in my 70s.

As an interesting point- people in this era did live to 60-70 quite often but because of the high rate of infant deaths it brings the average age down quite a lot. That’s why we get a life expectancy of about 47 for a man, 50 for a woman at the turn of 1900

(Of course, cycle forward 15 years and that whole war thing really brings the average down for men)
