I didn't really know where to place this, but I thought these were interesting and figured i'd share as these would make great elements in a horror/magick based SP tale.
The link I posted is in regards to Victorian Hair Wreaths. The purpose of the wreaths, which the article does not say, is that they were meant to be heirlooms and keepsakes for remembrance as the majority could not afford photographs.
and on the subject of photographs...
Victorian Death Photos
WARNING: VIEWING OF PHOTOS MIGHT POSSIBLY BE DISTURBING. NOT GRAPHIC, OR BLOODY. BUT CHILDREN ARE SHOWN.
I think this speaks volumes of the time and can easily contrast the way people then viewed things compared to now when it comes to death, loss and holding on to memories.
