Fig Tree growing out of a tomb in Watford Churchyard

A Fig Tree growing out of a tomb in Watford Churchyard - the legend runs that a lady buried in the vault from which the tree is growing was an atheist, and that on her death-bed she adhered to the tenet that expressed a wish that a fig tree might grow out of her heart if there were a God.... Local thought today is that the growth of the fig tree is more likely down to the vicars preference for eating figs as he walked to church, spitting the pips out as he went. It is also unlikely that an atheist would have occupied such an impressive tomb, so close to the church! Date: circa 1920s

Caliph Stork, an eastern tale

Caliph Stork, an eastern tale -- the Caliph asks Selim the Learned to decipher a document for him which he has bought from the peddler. Selim says it is in Latin and says that if he speaks the magic word 'Mutabor' he can change into an animal and understand animal languages. He can change himself back to human shape again by saying the same word. But he must be careful not to laugh while in animal shape, because then he will forget the magic word and have to remain an animal. (2 of 5) Date: circa 1890s
