    I have a few like this. I was always told they were mourning photos. Is this correct?

    Hi Pamela,
    Good question. Unfortunately, we have absolutely no background information on this photograph so cannot really say if it is indeed a mourning photo. From the pose though, I suspect that you are on the right track. I did do some research on this phenomenon so that I could provide you with some links that you could check out, but, all of them had at least one or two post-Morten photographs front and centre. Therefore, I leave it up to you whether or not you wish to research this genre of photography any further.
