Alison Bechdel's "Fun Home"

Scans from Alison Bechdel's memoir Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic. The summary from the back cover: "Distant and exacting, Bruce Bechdel was an English teacher and director of the town funeral home, which Alison and her family referred to as the 'Fun Home.' It was not until college that Alison, who had recently come out as a lesbian, discovered that her father was gay. A few weeks after this revelation, he was dead, leaving a legacy of mystery for his daughter to resolve."

In Chapter 4, "In the Shadow if Young Girls in Flower," Alison discovers some incriminating photos.
