Maria Halloran Postmortem. Cabinet card, ca. 1890. Her eyes remind me of this woman's, though more sunken:

Postmortem, 1877, The Netherlands

This is a beautiful postmortem photo. A little sleeping beauty with flowers placed in her hands and around her neck.

What an artistically composed photo this is of a woman and daughter documenting their mourning. Really impactful photo.

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"
