You’ve just reminded me of an ancestor who was a chemist (pharmacist). His wife died and he turned to drink. Have a picture of him as a rat catcher.

Just looking at one of my OH's ancestral couples in Guelph, Ontario in 1891 - one of their sons was a "butcher to kill" and another was a piano key maker.
