Tonight Lady T welcomes back Victorian Occult Expert Mrs. Mooney and Voodou Priestess and Paranormal expert Mambo Asogwe LaReina to discuss Victorian Post Mortem Photography.

These photographs served less as a reminder of mortality than as a keepsake to remember the deceased.This was especially common with infants and young children; Victorian era childhood mortality rates were extremely high, and a post-mortem photograph might be the only image of the child the family ever had.

Join us as we discuss this fascinating, yet heartbreaking custom.
