Mortal Mindy's picture

Even though "The industrial heritage of Whitby should now be revived, albeit in a high-tech way. What would the Victorian jet, alum and ironstone miners have thought of our ability to find and develop minerals at a depth of 1,500 metres? Even Dracula would want a stake in it!"

Dracula is a story of a stranger in a strange land. Unfamiliar with local customs, an alien, a story of  power, pursuasion, fixed views, freedom v fascism.   The book is a great read  penned by Stoker, with many 'occult' (hidden) influences of his time. 

"Come freely, go safely and may you leave something of the happiness that you may bring" 

or for a later interpretation, 

One rainy day ...
