Postmortem cabinet card photo of a baby, c.1890

This product is unavailable
Postcard-sized cabinet card photograph of an infant lying in a cradle next to an iron post bed. Today we may have mementos of lost children, but back when photography was new the most fitting tribute for a deceased loved one was a postmortem photograph. Infants who had passed away were often photographed before burial. 3 1/2 x 5 1/2. The Netherlands, c.1890.
