      A beautiful little boy with his stick and hoop toy. (post-mortem) I KNOW these precious children are in Heaven with Jesus!

      Victorian post mortem photograph of a little boy. His corpse has been posed as if sleeping after a hard day of playing. Note the hoop and stick toys. Photography was still new and relatively expensive. For many, an after death photo was the first and only time they'd been photographed.

    Memento mori photo. Twin poses with deceased sister (left). Memento mori's were popular in the Victorian era, photographs were expensive back then and the child death rate was high, so a lot of times this photo was the only one a family had to remember the deceased by. Usually purchased as a gift for the grieving families.
