    Genuinely creepy. POSSIBLE post mortem photo of the twin on the right. Stands were sometimes used to make the deceased seem alive. The R. Twins skin is discolored, the eyes are lifeless, arm hangs at his side and there's an unnatural leaning to his stance, whereas his brother has turned his head and is glancing up at him with trepidation. Live Siblings and surviving twins were often posed with their deceased siblings for post-mortem photos.
