What a beautiful way the child is looking at the woman.

Amazing photo of child and mother. Looks as though they could be in mourning, second stage, but it is rare to see children all in black.

    Actually, it's possible it was a boy. since boys were dressed in dresses and curls for the first several years of life. (And I saw somewhere that girls almost always had a bow at or near the neck.)

    Is a girl, not a MM... Dead can't stand..

    The empty chair represents the loss of the husband/father.

    This child is standing unnaturally and only on one foot. She could still be in rigor mortis.

    The posing stand was never meant for the dead. It was meant for the living to help them stay still and on mark for the photo session. There was not a stand on earth that could have supported the weight of a dead, limp body, much less make them look "alive". Anything else is a myth. If they're standing, they're alive, always! Neither the photographer nor embalmer were wizards.
