Victorian post mortem photography may seem strange, but for some families it was their only opportunity to have a memento of their loved one as photography was expensive at the time. Sometimes the dead were posed as if alive and sometimes are of children and babies due to the high death rate among this group at the time.
Teenage Victorian era girl. Not a Post mortem picture as previously labelled. Please remember that stands were there to support the subject and aid in keeping still. The stands were never capable for holding up a dead person!
I love that this post mortem photograph is so straightforward – no attempt has been made to pretty the situation up at all. The way the other boy (presumably his brother?) has his hand over that of the deceased child is so touching.
