If you question whether or not a photo is post mortem, it isn't a post mortem photo. It is a myth that the Victorians posed, propped and painted the dead to appear alive. True Victorian post mortem photos were rare, but quite obvious with the decedent lying in repose in a bed or coffin.

It is creepy in a sense.
It didn't go on back then, in this manner. Only two of these are post mortem photos. True Victorian post mortem photos were rare, but quite obvious, with the decedent lying in repose in a bed or coffin.

Don't you wonder how they managed to make the dead look so alive? They look alive because they are. Only two of these photos are post mortem.

That isn't a post mortem photo. You can't sit a corpse upright like that, and certainly can't put a baby on the lap of a corpse.

Only two are post mortem, so definitely not over-ripe.

They didn't paint eyes. That is a myth of many. Only 2 of these photos are post mortem.

Totally false. It's super easy to figure out who is deceased, because they would be lying in repose in a bed or coffin.
