postmortem, ca. 1890. There were some interesting comments made on my forum (thanatos.net/...) regarding this photo. The scissors are symbolic of death - basically, the cutting of the thread of life. It's also interesting to note that the doll's face is either covered or turned so that it is looking at the girl.

Her picture taken after death, look closely you can see the stand holds her up. When a loved one died the Victorians were presented with an opportunity to imortalise their beloved in a way that was previously impossible: they could photograph them. Because of the high cost of photography, post-mortem photographs were, in many cases, the only photograph a family had of the deceased.* ok thats y all the photos...creepy but interesting
