(Thank you to Elspeth for suggesting the subject of Victorian death photography.)


  1. There are so many beautiful things here. I have really loved visiting your blog.
    Just the other day I visited John Ruskins grave stone, it is very decorative, very lovely.

  2. Thank you, Milly.
    I took a look online at some photos of Ruskin's grave stone ... very beautiful!
    Thanks for stopping by!
