Off the Deep End

Well since discovering Steam punk and finding it suits me rather well. Or I should I say  I finally found other people like minded as myself. My family and even my best friend all think I have lost it totally. Jumped 5 fathoms down off the deep end.

On the snowy Saturday afternoon of December 1901, Mrs Rose Mooney sat in front of the blazing fire in the caretaker's quarters at Speke Hall, an old but beautiful half-timbered mansion in…
