Mummified Baby Nessie with Internal Organs ?.
The gentleman in the photo, reportedly a physician that conducted the autopsy on the wee beastie presented here (if memory serves), may have been rumored to have participated in the Bathymetrical Survey of the Fresh-Water Lochs of Scotland. The provenance card accompanying the exhibit identifies him as Dr. Alexander Moore. “1912 Dr. Alexander Moore led an expedition to prove the existance (sic) of a creature said to live in Loch Ness. His team searched the loch for more than 3 weeks and returned with one infant specimen. The creature was already dead when it was discovered but the Dr. was able to preserve the heart, one lung and a segment of intestine.” Doc Weitzel’s Traveling Curiosity Show Old Gettysburg Village, Gettysburg, PA
