Romulus- you seem to be omitting the above image from your comparison, which is a bit disingenuous don't you think?

Not at all. The photo with the lady was made in 1910, the one with the man in the white suit about 10 years later. But the stains are exactly the same. The first pic is taken from a further distance so the smaller stains at the sides are less visible.

If I'm correct in this assumption, any widening of the "stain" you see would be from the Victorian era forward, possibly a remnant of the cleaning job

Typical total denial of evidence. I'm an artist and a sculptor. I worked a lot with wax. If the stains were wax and they were cleaned, you would also expect a widening at the top and a very irregular pattern of stains. I think it's ridiculous to think that someone has cleaned the KC from wax leaving behind such a beautiful natural pattern.

It's hard to say for sure but this image also seems to indicate the texture we'd expect from dripping wax

Not at all, the stains are too irregular. Too much movement in the stains. Like I had shown before with this picture, dripping wax goes straight down and looks totally different.

It's also worth noting that "stain" does not reach the floor in this image.

This supports the idea that the KC floor was filled with water.
