This visualization explores the history of the lumber and funerary industries as they were presented Alison Bechdel's graphic memoir, Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic. The 1880s gothic revival home where the story takes place serves as a connector between her personal narrative and the histories of these two important industries in Pennsylvania. The visualization was originally entered in Clio as individual entries to create a walking tour. We have moved them into the virtual storytelling platform in Clio so that each entry will appear with this important contextual information.
