Post Mortem Ambrotype of a Baby

Click photo to view larger image.
Excellent sixth plate image of a deceased baby. This postmortem ambrotype shows the young child laying lifeless on a small bed. The expression is one of emptiness as if life has just drifted away. A nice ring of solarization makes this image even more haunting. Contained in a half leather case.
