This one is weird! Even for me.. Victorian examples of post-mortem photography, mysterious and extremely odd vintage portraits of families in which the mother is disguised as a chair. In some cases there seems to be a real attempt to make the figure of the mother appear like an actual chair; in other cases,like this one it looks like they simply want to conceal the mother's identity. Maybe it's to keep a live child still enough to take a clear photo or to keep a deceased one in position.

This is a fantastic photograph of a dead young woman named Jeanette Glackmeyer. She had been dead nine days when this photograph was taken.
