Not the subject of Friday's article -
this child is known to be dead!
You will remember the "I Think She's Dead" series of articles here on Shades. Well, the owner of that photograph has another one that he wants you to contemplate, form an opinion, and add your opinion to the comments in Friday From The Collectors, "Is She Dead?" (The photograph will be displayed in the Friday Article.)
The photograph is sent to us courtesy of The Thanatos Archive in Seattle, Washington. The Archive houses an extensive collection of vintage postmortem and mourning photos, many of which date back to the mid-1800s.
I have weighed in with my opinion. You will be able to read it after you post your comment.
So be here Friday, March 27, to give us your opinion in "Is She Dead?"
