Victorian post mortem photos
Home - My Plexus Products
this is a photo of 2 sisters, the one on the left has passed away. This will be the last photo & memory of their loved one. Very common in Victorian days.You can see the look of despair as the sister on the right is literally holding her beloved sister up to create a natural photo. These photographs were called "Memento Mori"
