This little guy is riding a cane like a hobby horse. It looks like there is stand behind him too. Both of these things there are to keep this lively little boy still during a long shutter exposure.
This young man was possibly an ill child, posed for a pre-mortem photograph. His grip on the stick horse he rides appears to be that of a living person, but the tint added to his cheeks and his weak eyes contribute to the perception of sickness.
... if it wasn't for the clearly visible stand behind this little boy, it would not cross you mind that he was anything other than living...
Unusual. The cane, as a "prop" is also a support, with main stand showing, too. Most photos were taken with the posing stand obscured, if visible at all.
post mortem photography, an eerily common practice in the Victorian era.
Adorable little guy and very much alive

Another pinner said:This is the creepiest one and what is on her lips?? Yikes... Before their burial, the deceased would be photographed in their best clothes and 'posing' (propped up) with their living relatives. In some instances, eyes were painted onto the closed eyelids of the deceased to make them appear alive. In Victorian times when photographs were rare, this might be the only photo the family had of their dearly departed.

Goodness, look at this loved one's lips. This postmortem photo is interesting, as they didn't seem to try to hide the lips sewn together.
dementium-rabbit: Post Mortem fake This is NOT a postmortem, dementium-rabbit. It is a modern fake. This is not what postmortems look like, nor is this how they are posed. Please do more research before labeling any picture as a postmortem.

Another modern fake that many are posting as a Victorian postmortem photo. The overall quality of the photo, tinted with sepia tones, tells us it is a modern image. She is standing, which dead people could not do, and the lips were Photoshopped. We also know that stitching the lips together was not a Victorian practice. Her dress is also not of the period. This is an alive woman pretending to be a corpse.

Mother With Sullen Child, Rachel ~ This child looks to be deceased, but I cannot be sure. Her eyes have the appearance of ones that were painted on her eyelids. It was a common occurrence during the Victorian Era for parents to have pictures taken of their dead babies or children & sometimes they would have eyes painted over their eyelids for the purpose of picture taking.
Victorian post-mortem photograph of a woman holding her dead daughter in her arms. The little girl's corpse's eyelids are painted with 'eyes' to make her look alive for the photograph. Photography was a new technology and, though expensive, afforded a new way for families to remember their past loved ones.
Woman and her dead child with painted-on eyes. This is creepy but it seems like it was common at the time to do this with children.

This is a photograph of Carrie L. Parsons, wife and three children murdered by Joseph Hamilton about two miles east of Success, MO on Friday October the 12, 1906. Parsons had sold his crop to young Hamilton. As the parson family was leaving town, Hamilton murdered them and threw their bodies into the Piney River. Hamilton was arrested two days later trying to make his escape. He made a full confession of his crime and was hanged.

There must be a story about how this family died... this photograph is known as Memento Mori, or the post mortem photography of deceased people for the sake of having an image to remember them by... I do wonder whether this is actually taken for the purpose of a coronial inquest, though.
Victorian post mortem photo. An entire family murdered after selling their farm and attempting to move on. Post-Mortem and Mourning Photography.
Memento Mori: Victorian Death Photos. With the advent of photography in the Victorian era an unusual practice evolved. It is well known that mortality rates were high in this era due mostly to disease poor hygiene. When a loved one died, Victorians had an opportunity to imortalise their beloved in a way that was previously impossible: they could photograph them. ...that's not creepy at all.

Although this one is not as cut-and-dried as most, I don't believe this is a post-mortem. My reasons: she is holding the flowers in her hand and, were she dead, there would have been no need for either shawl or blanket. But if there is general disagreement on this call, I'll delete it.
It is just crazy to think that in the past people would make a last pose with their deads for a last picture. They called it 'post mortem' photos... The woman is, as you might have concluded, dead. And the look in that man's eyes... gee...
With the invention of photography people for the first time in history could have photos of their deceased loved ones. The deceased would be posed in their best clothing. Because of very high children's mortality rates and high mortality rates in general post mortem photos were largely of children, sometimes being held by their family. Families were very grateful to have these moments. Biddy Cragt
It looks liike if he moved his hand, her head would fall backwards. Or maybe off.

Not a post mortem. Originally labelled: This boy is also dead, but that's not what he's here to demonstrate. We've established that Victorian people photographed their dead for posterity before holding any sort of funeral services for their loved ones, but what's interesting about this photo is the detail near his foot.

Not a post mortem. Stand are to steady the living
Standing post mortems are an urban legend. Stands were used to steady people for long exposure times used in photography at that time. It's impossible to prop up a dead person in this fashion! The stand couldn't hold up that much 'dead weight', the mouth would hang open, and the head and limbs would flop down. Could a person even hold up a dead child and have her look natural? No, and a stand can't do it either!

Post mortem. Los niños, en estos casos, solían mostrarse reposando en un sofá o una cuna, a menudo junto a su juguete favorito u otro juguete, y tampoco era raro que aparecieran junto a uno o varios miembros de la familia, siendo lo más frecuente que apareciera en brazos de la madre. En ambos casos, las flores eran también un motivo común de la fotografía

Victorian Post Mortem Photography.....I know it is morbid,but,it is history and I absolutely love it!
Memento Mori: Victorian Death Photos. A quite disturbing element of these Victorian post-mortem photographs is the fact that due to the slow process of taking pictures with early cameras, the living in photographs are slightly blurred whilst the dead – who cannot move – appears with crystal clarity. In some ways the dead seem more alive than the living – certainly less ghostly. (says previous pinner, but to me the kid seems very much alive)

NOT a post mortem photograph. Source doesn't identify it as such (always click through when in doubt). The assertion that it is post mortem has been added by a pinner and then circulated as truth. Posing stands are not evidence of post mortem and were used to hold live people in still poses.
Lovely photo of a teenaged girl. Very poised--not an easy pose to hold with a posing stand up your back!
A Victorian Death Photo. Look closely; you can see the stand that 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."
Her picture taken after death, look closely you can see the stand holds her up. Post mortem photography. I never realized this was even something that we did until my Death & Dying class in college. It's very fascinating to me. Almost to the point that I considered very seriously for a few years about going into mortuary science.
I do not believe this is a postmortem photo. The did not use the posing stand on dead people. The stand would not support the "Dead Weight" of a person. Moving this to Vintage Pics.
Before modern medicine humans had a high mortality rate. After photography was invented it became normal for people to have photos taken of the deceased. However this is not a post mortem picture though you can see a stand in back holding her up, these were only used for the living to stop movement since picture exposure took up to 30 minutes!
Teen girl, 1860s. Original comment: "picture taken after her death, look closely you can see the stand that holds her up" No!! Stands where NOT used solely for post mortem photos. Quite often, a stand would be used to hold a subject still - this technique was used most commonly for younger children.
Pinners call this a Post Mortem photo.This girl is NOT DEAD! There is no such thing as a standing PM photo! Inform yourself before you call a photo PM.

Tintype, 1870. Postmortem, yes. Memento mori... the woman sitting on the right I believe... though it's odd how the couple standing are so clear, and the women sitting are blurred suggestive of slight movement... perhaps its the couple that is dead?
Beginning in the mid-1800s, post-mortem photography (or memento mori) was a popular way to honor and remember the dead. Most were taken shortly after death, and could look incredibly life-like. Photographs were expensive, so often the post-mortem picture was the only one ever taken of an individual. Families evidently thought it better to have the remembrance than to lose ithe opportunity.
The original caption for this picture read "victorian post mortem photos | skull illusion family girl slumped ..." They look alive to me, but dad was sure having a bad "head" day.
