5-year-old boy, 1901. Victorian post mortem photography may seem strange, but for some families it was their only opportunity to have a memento of their loved one as photography was expensive at the time. Sometimes the dead were posed as if alive and sometimes are of children and babies due to the high death rate among this group at the time.

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.
