Turn of the Century- Lon Chaney Sr

The Old Towne Mall could be a scary place, and no other section of the mall represented that fact than the Turn of the Century Wax Museum. Here, eerie images of past movie stars and historical figures stared blankly in space. This picture shows a wax figure of Lon Chaney Sr. from his 1923 motion picture The Hunchback of Notre Dame. This figure looks incredibly acurate, and Quasimodo never felt so creepy.

This close up shows the tortured soul as if he were waiting for the next female museum patron to walk by so he could snatch her up and take his victim up to the bell tower. Excellent detail abounds on a very realistic figure.
