I can't even begin to say how much I love this bizarre photo.
Unwanted babies for sale in 1940's Italy. Probably from unwed mothers, poverty-stricken families, or prostitutes
This is what the kids saw coming up my porch stairs.
Have A Happy Halloween !
Family photo..Father is holding deceased child: this was a legitimate practice called "Post Mortem photography". It was a booming business in the western world from circa 1860-1910. This was done in my family too. For my great aunt & aunt.
Sometimes they'd paint eyes onto the deceased's eyelids to make it more lifelike. It was expensive to get photos taken; it may have been their only chance to photograph their loved ones.
No one in this photo is dead. No one is in mourning clothing and everyone looks too life like, even the sleeping baby. Babies often fell asleep during long photo sessions. Not every babe with its eyes closed was dead.

i agree with minuteman's wife...these "simple" masks are creepier than today's standards..
I think it boils down to "innocence turned sinister."
