17 Haunting Post-Mortem Photographs From The 1800s -- WHICH ONE IS FREAKIN' DEAD!?

Beginning in the mid-1800s, post-mortem photography (or memento mori) was a popular way to honor and remember the dead. Description from pinterest.com. I searched for this on bing.com/images
Tintype, 1870. Postmortem, yes. Memento mori- it wasn't only pictures of children that were made post mortem.
Beginning in the mid-1800s, post-mortem photography (or memento mori) was a popular way to honor and remember the dead. Most were taken shortly after death, and could look incredibly life-like. Photographs were expensive, so often the post-mortem picture was the only one ever taken of an individual. Families evidently thought it better to have the remembrance than to lose ithe opportunity.
Actually think that that's a blind retard, that is to say, this not an example of Post-mortem photography
Tintype, 1870. Postmortem, yes. Memento mori... the woman sitting on the right I believe... though it's odd how the couple standing are so clear, and the women sitting are blurred suggestive of slight movement... perhaps its the couple that is dead?
I find post-mortem photography (in the 17 and 1800's) absolutely fascinating. And very, very creepy.

Very strange and thought provoking. Who would put this on a memorial stone...and what happened to Lilly Gray?
this is just creepy...but y put this on a gravestone especially if its not some truth or a dying request??? hmmmm
very strange and thought provoking. Who would put this on a memorial stone? Hmmm. My great grandma was a Gray. Be weird if this was her family.
I know it's not a ghost so shouldn't really be on a ghost photos board but it just freaked me out
A couple of years ago, after viewing a gravestone on a visit to the Salt Lake Cemetery, I was compelled to begin an investigation, in hopes of uncovering the ultimate meaning of a very ominous and enigmatic phrase, Victim of the Beast 666. The phrase is on the stone of a woman named Lilly E. Gray, born June 6, 1881, died November 14, 1958. Some cursory online research revealed only a few clues about Lilly; discrepancies regarding the spelling of her name, birth and death dates; th…

Beautiful Victorian Children Photography | victorian children 2 260x300 Raising Children in the Victorian Times
Early photographs took a long time to make and people needed to stand and pose. So people are just tired, especially children, and appear to be sad in the photo. Here are a few examples of such photographs of the Victorian era.
The role of children in the Victorian era is based on your social status. Wealthy children are very spoiled and they barely spend time with their parents. They are raised by a nanny who teaches them the "proper ways". Unlike poor children, they live less fortunate lives where they have to work and sometimes to help pay bills. In Jane's case, since she is used to be mistreated and abuse but she refuses to treat others that way.
Victorian Era Fashion | andribbons a fashion trends line drawings and childrens fashions from
Sorta like today, for sure. Raising children in the victorian times. Mothers and Fathers were seen as special, glamorous guests, due to the fact that they were never around and rarely seen by their children. This was because child and parent led totally separate existences; they were only summoned to appear before their parents at a certain set hour of the day.It was the era of nurses and nannies, the child was not raised by the woman who gave birth to him, but by the hired help.

The results of Congenital Syphilis before penicillin was discovered...will we be seeing more of this in the future as these diseases become resistant to meds and continue to be spread?
The results of Congenital Syphilis before penicillin was discovered. Until fairly recent times, doctors who treated a man with the disease saw it as an ethical principle not to inform the wife or the innocent young girl he was about to marry.--when she could have made some choice. Instead, she was surprised by a baby like this.
The results of Congenital Syphilis before penicillin was discovered. HORRIFIC! Poor thing. We don't see such things anymore (Thank God!) and forget how horrible it was before antibiotics.
A victim of congenital syphilis. The devastation caused by this disease, found in the pre-penicillin era, was horrible and disfiguring.
Oh wow. How grateful we should be for antibiotics! Congenital syphilis, pre penicillin (it was a devastating disease)

Odin ("The Furious One") is a major god in Germanic mythology, especially in Norse mythology. In many Norse sources he is the Allfather of the gods and the ruler of Asgard. In Norse mythology, Huginn (from Old Norse "thought") and Muninn (Old Norse "memory" or "mind") are a pair of ravens that fly all over the world, Midgard, and bring information to the god.

Hans Langseth aka King Whiskers. You can read about him here: http://hanslangseth.com/HansLangseth/index.html
Vintage photos -- just add text. I think this is a representation of Odin, who once gave an eye for his two ravens. Would be good for the Norse article.

Odin, Norse mythology. This photo actually shows Hans Langseth who died in 1927. A Norwegian-born American who holds the world record for the longest beard at 17 ft 6 in. After his death it was donated to the Smithsonian Museum. This photo of Langseth was photoshopped to add the Ravens and eye patch.

c.1839, Memento Mori photos were a way of honoring & remembering the dead. The practice faded after about 1900 as cameras became common & people were likely to have other photos taken during life.

Memento Mori - Photo being taken of deceased man being held up by posing stand. Posing stand was to keep the posers fixed and in position because of the time it took to take the photographs. The subject is placed in front of the camera. If necessary, the pose is held with the assistance of adjustable head rests, clamps and posing stands.
Photo of a Momento Mori photo being taken. Please note that although this is a posing stand, it is only for supporting the head. They were used in the 1830s for 'live' models to lean against during the 15-30 min. exposure time. A cadaver would have to be seated. The sort of stand required to support a corpse has never been found.
Fantastic photo of a Momento Mori photo being taken. Love the head rest to keep the head in place. Please note that although this is a posing stand, it is only for supporting the head. They were used in the 1830s for 'live' models to lean against during the 15-30 min. exposure time. A cadaver would have to be seated.

Pictures in Time: Stiff Pose: Victorian Postmortem photography. I am very glad this is not really done today.
Fantastic photo of a Momento Mori photo being taken. Love the head rest to keep the head in place. Please note that this is NOT a posing stand however. Posing stands are supposed to support the considerable weight (dead weight) of an adult, complete with jointed armatures to position the arms. I keep my ear to the ground in hopes that one day one will be found. Currently there is no known posing stand in existence. So as cool as the story is, it is likely they are mere legend.
This looks to me like a death photo - a photo taken after a person in deceased. A common practice in past years. Not only is this man on a stand, look at his limp arms and legs. Last Pinner said: Photo being taken of man being held up by posing stand - The purpose of the posing stand was to keep the posers fixed and in position because of the time it took to take the photographs. If necessary, the pose is held with the assistance of adjustable head rests, clamps and posing stands.
