I think this photo was post-mortem. Her hand at the neckline of her dress doesn't seem to be in a natural position, and her eyes seem distant. The hand on the stool could well have been used to help prop her up. Her hair gives an appearance of having been neglected, perhaps due to illness.
Thomas Orange This mug shot comes from a police identification book believed to be from the 1930s. It was originally found in a junk shop by a member of the public and subsequently donated to Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums. No information is available to confirm which police force compiled it but evidence suggests it's from the Newcastle upon Tyne area.
This antique photo from around 1850 instantly jumps out and grabs your attention. In it we see a young woman holding a full plate daguerreotype portrait of a man. Just who that man is (her brother, husband, even father?) remains a true mystery however. One cannot help but wonder if she sat for this image, holding her treasured photograph of a way of memorializing, for all of the time, the important bond the two had shared. #Victorian #photograph #antique #vintage #woman #family
