Photographing dead children was a common practice years ago during Late Victorian & Early Edwardian times. (1860 - 1910) Infant & child deaths were very common. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. I've seen tombstones in graveyards here in Canada from the late 1800's where 3,4 or even as many as 6 young children from a single family who died from sicknesses are buried there. Today many of us are isolated from deaths, especially infant deaths due to modern medicine, whereas in those times it was a common thing. I wonder how many parents or children today would pose for a realistic photo with a dead family member?
