I have to admit that this is my favorite feature in my blog. Sure, plenty of other people have whole blogs devoted to historical hotties, but they don’t provide little blurbs about each person. I offer that little extra because usually their stories make them even hotter. Today’s gentleman is an exception.
Victorian Mystery Man
I stumbled across this picture while doing an Internet photo search but there’s no information on who he is and I haven’t been able to find any. But it’s a shame to just leave it at that. So I’ll just make up a biography for him. Here goes:
Bartholomew J. Throckmorton
A mild-mannered apothecary from Newcastle, Mr. Throckmorton was renowned for his unique preparations. Wealthy customers came from all over England and abroad to purchase his tinctures, elixirs, tonics, salves, potions, lotions, balsams, balms, and his specialty, strawberry lemonade. In 1844 he concocted a special blend of tea in honor of Queen Victoria’s 25th birthday that he called RoyalTea. The queen liked it so much that she knighted him. Sir Bartholomew enjoyed a prosperous and happy life, and died in his sleep at the age of 87.
There. I think that’s a nice fake bio for such a nice-looking sir.
