SAD PHOTOGRAPH OF A BABY IN A COFFIN SURROUNDED BY GRIEVING FAMILY

I apologize to any Cabinet Card Gallery visitors who find this photograph upsetting or offensive. It is important to keep in mind that post mortem photographs such as this one, were not produced for voyeuristic purposes. Instead, these images were made for families to preserve their memories of their deceased loved ones. Nevertheless, I recognize that these photos are often upsetting to viewers, and in fact, no matter how many post mortem images I have seen, they still stir up a lot of sad emotions for me. The previous owner of this photograph reports that it was taken in Russia in the mid 1920’s. Pictured in the image is a baby in a small coffin covered by flowers, surrounded by grieving family. The mourners are dressed in dark winter clothing indicating that the photograph may have been taken outdoors.

HOW NOT TO DRESS FOR SLEDDING FUN IN BELGIUM

sledding 3

This photograph captures three couples gathered around a “tricked out” sled on a winter day. There is snow on the ground and the woman are wearing weather appropriate footwear. Interestingly, only three of the subjects are paying attention to the camera. It is also notable that the individuals in this image are not dressed for frolicking in the snow. My guess is that they may have been out walking and happened upon the sled. One of them may have thought the sled presented them with a terrific  photo opportunity. This photograph, according to an inscription on the reverse of the image, was taken in Spa, Belgium. The photograph was shot at the Chalet de Geronstere in 1933. Spa is a town in the Province of Liege, Belgium. It is situated in a valley in the Ardennes mountains.
