:::::::::: Vintage Photograph :::::::::: Ethereal photograph of young woman on a beach.

Her picture taken after death, look closely you can see the stand holds her up. When a loved one died the Victorians were presented with an opportunity to imortalise their beloved in a way that was previously impossible: they could photograph them. Because of the high cost of photography, post-mortem photographs were, in many cases, the only photograph a family had of the deceased.
