On one of the DR threads, this custom was acted upon in very recent times. I saw several pix of the deceased propped up in the corner during his funeral at his home, while the mourners milled about. I forgot the name of the thread...anyone happen to remember which one?

No idea where the thread is that you're talking about, but is this the same thing you're talking about? Kid kept standing for a 3-day wake?

It doesn't make sense nowadays where everyone has hundreds of photos taken in life. For this people, a photo was a memorable event. Cameras where not widespread, they were restricted to people with specific skills and expensive. So, taking a picture right after dead made some sense, grab an image of the departed. Still creepy.
