This tragic post mortem view of a little baby shows a scene that happened all too often in Victorian era America.

Infant mortality rates were very high.

For many families these post mortem views of children were the only image of the child and were cherished by the family.

Photographed in the 1890s by Ensminger of Manheim, Penn.
