Postmortem Photography in the Victorian era, Part 3
Having photos taken in the Victorian era was very expensive and most families didn’t own a camera. But when a loved one died, the Victorians were presented with an opportunity to immortalize 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. Here can be found Part 1 and Part 2 of our series.
Be careful, as some of these photos are really disturbing!
