This board contains Victorian era post mortem photography. Although the subjects are posed tastefully and usually appear alive, it might not be suitable for all viewers. This board is for respect of the dead. It's a beautiful, haunting lost art of remembering those who've passed on - and usually the only picture they had of their loved one.
