|Antique post mortem photograph of a deceased baby dressed in black on black linens. This is a CDV. The photographer's name on the back is: H. K. Gage, Truckee, Cal. What makes this quite intriguing and rare are two things: 1) The baby is being held by its mother. Note the collar at the top and the arms. 2) The baby is dressed in black on black linens. Most often the linens are white, even if the baby may be in black. Unusual, to say the least. I estimate the date of this photo to c1890. Excellent condition.|
