Victorian post-mortem photography. In most Victorian post-mortem photography, the deceased was shown peacefully sleeping. In deaths involving children, post-mortem photography was especially precious since little or no pictures were taken before their death. (..) Most pictures were thought to be a keepsake rather than an alarming reminder of short mortality.

    For the love of....this is FAKE!! It is clearly a photoshopped photo of Abraham Lincoln! It was used in the FICTIONAL book "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter". Surely it is easy to spot the 20th century technology on this man from the 1860s! I really wish people would stop pinning this as history!
