The Mansion of E :: Part Six: On My Way to Town

Happy New Year 2016. Some of these folks have been glimpsed before, but many of them have not. And those faded visages on the pillars are my homage to some of my fellow artists who still hang out on the (otherwise mostly deserted) ComicGenesis official forums.
Rosemary met Mrs. Hettie Warnock here.The Women's Circle was mentioned here.
