This photo makes me weep though the premise and practice behind it is kind of creepy and interesting. Post-Mortem Photography - A Morbid Photographic Legacy Of The Victorian Era
Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like.
