Death of Twain

On May 7, 1910 the Harper’s Weekly published a photo spread of pictures on page 11 entitled: “Last Honors to Mark Twain”. These are two photos from an original copy of the weekly. If you look closely you can see the engine steam coming from behind the top of the man’s hat. The body arrived in New York that same day. He was buried in Elmira New York next to two of his daughters, a son and his wife Olivia.
