It’s October; the spookiest month of the year! With this in mind I wanted to explore the darker side of the Victorian Era by looking at the practise of photographing the dead. Needless to say, then, this blog includes several mentions of death which some readers may find disturbing. If death and the documenting thereof are topics you find uncomfortable, I recommend you stop reading here. Otherwise, I hope you find the information in this blog as fascinating as I did when I researched it.
