Postmortem twin infants


These twin infants are dressed in matching sack gowns of checked cotton gathered at the neck, and a white linen or cotton shirt. They look about two months old.

Postmortem Infant


This baby is probably a boy, as there is no center part in the hair. The gown has an unusually close neckline. The closed eyes indicate that the subject is dead.

Postmortem photos of babies were often the only image that had been captured of the child.

Postmortem Boy with Mother


This mother posed with her dead son for this portrait. We know this is a boy because his hair is parted on both sides. We know he is dead because his eyes are closed.

He wears a cotton print frock with front buttons and flounced sleeves. The clothing is poorly arranged on him, which suggests the difficulty of dressing him for this photo. The top of his left boot is visible.

Three postmortem children


These three children are noted as having died from cholera. The photo was taken after their death, as shown by the closed eyes.

All three are wearing plaid from the, probably from the same bolt.

The large school slate shows a three column addition partly solved. The middle boy holds a large lump of chalk.
