    Cigars and snappy bowler hats seem to be de rigeur for proper post-mortem attire.

    Great finds, Sarah, I was looking for that 2nd photo you put up but couldn't find it; well done. Elizabeth's photos are terrific too.
    'Morbid Anatomy' is one of my favorite websites.

    Sarah, I attached your 'Dad at College, 1890' photo:

    It is isnt it?

    I love the way they 'posed' them...and they still have their wedding bands on and sleeves rolled down...the moustaches are brilliant!

    Its so fascinating an image...and shows so much about that era...

    Not to mention the writing on the back of 'Dad at college' !!!!!

    That is a most excellent image.

    I love the ones where they pose with the skeleton, I think most people would be slightly creeped out to do that, just goes to show the 'other side' of the Victorians...

    Some of those corpses look a bit stale to say the least...pass the nosepegs!
