    What people dont realise, is that at one point ... Taking a photograph of someone was a once in a life time experince, it was EXPENSIVE!

    Not like now that for $5 we can get a disposable 30 shot camera. Back then it was $5,000 to get A picture!

    My grandparents once told me that when their uncle died, the entire family pitched money to have his picture taken, they suited him up, proped him up, and took a picture as if he was just sitting in a chair with a suit on and his eyes closed.

    Yeah I guess when a picture is that expensive, you don`t really fork over the money for one until someone dies and you want to remember their face forever.

    DO NOT take a closer look at that startled-looking baby!!! I don`t think I`ll be getting much sleep tonight...
    Then there`s Ms. Jeanette Glockmeyer, whose picture was taken nine days after her death. She`s just standing there, holding a book as if waiting to start reading it again.

    *shivers* brrr.....

    Wow. It was creepy, sad, and oddly fascinating. It`s funny how each generation has practices that become so weird and outrageous in later years. I freaked at the open eye pictures. Whoooa! I feel haunted now. I love being scared. I don`t know why.

    Strange custom, but, I guess I understand it. Doesn`t mean I`m going to do it--like has been said above, we can and do take so many photos and videos these days that there`s no need to get just one last shot before burial or cremation or whatever.

    its sad. but it seems kinda nice that people wanna remember their family in such an obscure way. because, even if the picture is disturbing it may hold some sort of sentimental value in the family. i hope it does anyway..

    The dead are at peace and the living ill-at-ease because they do not understand they should be happy for the lost. How typical and arrogant of the living.

    The shocked baby, am I the only one who does NOT think it looks scary? I honestly think that looks like a photoshop because of the position of the head combined with the clearness of the face as well as it`s disproportion to the body.

    they didn`t scare me...I just feel sad for all those babies and parents and siblings. to the person who said they wouldn`t be able to touch a dead person...I used to think like that, but now I have 2 kids...ages 3, and 2, and if either of them died, you`d have to pry them away from me. I`d just be holding onto them as long as I could before I couldn`t anymore...ever. I need a good cry now...

    Somewhere, I think my sister might have it, we have a picture of some forgotten relative in their coffin. The picture always creeped me out, with an odd sense of curiousity thrown in. I can understand the reasoning one might have for taking pictures of their dead, back then, that is. It`s so easy for us to take pictures now that the chances of forgetting anyone are pretty freaking slim. Just, try not to think of it as creepy, even though it really kind of is. These were some peoples only reminders of loves lost.

    I totally understand people who take picture of dead relative. Absolutly. I worked for 4 years in a hospital reserved to those who gonna die.

    I went to so many funeral... I saw so many heart broken moments... I think some people will say it was "creepy" but I think its normal to still want a souvenir of the person.

    And back in time, like many say, it was expensive to take a picture. Once in a lifetime. I understand the mother taking picture of the dead baby... I understand it very very very much... You carried that baby, waited for it, it was such a nice event when the baby was there... and now he/she is gone... Its very hard...

    But its amaze me... anyone who have see a dead body know that its actually start to stink in a very few hrs... and unless you send it to the morgue... well its nasty... 9 days... i just can imagine the smell of rotten flesh >.<

    Etlie, its called The Others.

    Anyways, I can completely understand this tradition. Id probably even partake in it, were I in that time period. However, this should have been a rule :

    Never take pictures of dead people WITH THEIR EYES OPEN.

    its wrong. Creepy. Whatever.

    Anyways, I actually liked the last on in the first coloumn on the first page -- she looks so peaceful.

    omg. its not so much freaky as it is heartbreaking. i cant imagine how that would feel. i think it only freaks people out because the pictures are so old, not because the people are dead. i mean, all you have to do is look at any photo from this age, and youll get shivers. but, the baby ones and the teenage ones were the most heartbreaking for me. it would just hurt so much to lose someone and poo. idk. ugh. but i like this, its kind of like a memorial almost.

    That`s really odd.

    The one with the boy and his dead twin is particularly sad.

    You can see the little kids say, "Mom... The baby is dead, can we go home now.... Please, she doesn`t even care about her photo. Lets get ice cream."

    people collect these and most are actually postcards that were made to announce the death to distant family memebers. The baby post mortem are the most popular and expensive for the collectors!

    "I`m a historical retard :( but can someone explain to me why so many children died then? I`m not being a smartass, I really want to know."

    Children are just very vunerable to illness, even nowdays, as they`re immune systems arent fully developed. And much more vunerable those days as the conditions were poorer then, no anti-bacterial wipes and plasters handy if the kids scraped their knee, they didnt have heating and babies need to keep warm, and i dont think vacinations had started then against diseases like meningitis and measles

    LOL.. i found one of those pictures really funny.. 2nd colmn at the top in black and white.. its the look on the kids faces, you can tell they`re just looking at the photographer thinking "Dude, how much longer do we have to stand here with this frikkin dead kid?"

    I only found one of them freaky.. the one of the toddler with its eyes open in 3rd column *shiver*

    It`s sad that there are so many children ... but I guess it`s nothing out of the ordinary. Many children didn`t live past their fifth birthday in Victorian times!

    The ones with their eyes open are hypnotizing,they just keep staring, especially the kid staring out the window.

    oddly enough, i think most of the pics are beautiful.. maybe im just a bit strange, but most of the people/babies look like theyre just sleeping peacefully. none of them look `scary` except maybe the woman who looks a bit like a vampire. (her teeth were scary & her eyes were kind of bugged out)

    actually ive got pictures of dead relatives from only like 20-30 years ago.. ive seen a picture of my uncle in a casket since i was a small child that might be why this stuff doesnt seem creepy to me.. or maybe its just because its really not creepy at all..

    Yes I agree with desie. There is nothing scary about death, humans are just to weak to accept it. It can actaully be quite wonderful

    Would someone please look at the one where the Black live twin is standing behind his dead twin laid on the couch. The expression on his face is clearly disturbing. Hell, I was disturbed. :-|

    I find this kind of stuff interesting. I am weird like that. Yes, the one with the kid looking out the window scared the sh*t out of me. But the one with the baby "shocked" face was amazing...just amazing that he/she looked so alive. His/Her parents must have treasured that picture for the rest of their lives!

    In our culture we are so insulated against death.Back then those people were exposed to it from an early age;people died in their homes & were laid out there until the funeral.The child mortality rates were very high;as a mom I can understand wanting a memento of a child especially if it`s the only one you will ever have. After all a mother carries that child in her body,labors to give birth and in those days women put their lives on the line to have babies and they probably tended that child in it`s last illness. I read that the photos with the eyes appearing to be open were painted that way by the photographer.I think people in those days knew how to grieve.In this culture people are expected to "move on" and forget their dead loved ones too soon--we are not allowed to mourn because it`s a reminder of our own mortality.
