A compilation of 194 extraordinary and haunting photographs and related ephemera which document the practise of death and mourning photography in the Victorian era and early 20th century. There are hand coloured photographs, albumen prints, ambrotypes, cabinet cards, carte de viste, daguerreotypes, gelatine silver prints, opaltypes and postcards, all showing different examples of mourning photography. These are supplanted with original newspaper articles, funeral notices and memorial cards, all offering a fascinating insight into the grieving practises of the past.
