Bram Stoker Was A Redhead!

This is a another Emanuela discovery and it's quite a big one! Fitting in with the red-haired vampire theme quite nicely it turns out that Bram Stoker was a redhead. It seems very odd, but also quite fitting, that the inventor of the modern vampire myth would be a redhead.

Stoker was over six feet tall with thick red hair and has been called a "red-haired giant." Interestingly, in his most famous novel Dracula, he gives vampire hunter Van Helsing red hair.
The forehead is broad and fine, rising at first almost straight and then sloping back above two bumps or ridges wide apart, such a forehead that the reddish hair cannot possibly tumble over it, but falls naturally back and to the sides. Big, dark blue eyes are set widely apart, and are quick and tender or stern with the man's moods.
