McLaren 650S Le Mans Edition to Celeberate Historic Victory of McLaren during Le Mans 24 Hours Race in 1995

McLaren 650S Le Mans Edition is how McLaren celebrates its historic 1995 Le Mans winning. It’s a historic win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1995 because it wasn’t really expected since McLaren F1 GTR was just a road car competing against purposely built racers. That competition also was the first entry by McLaren in one of toughest races in the world. Imagine the surprise when McLaren took the position to finish 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 13th. To this day, this is the only auto manufacturer that wins the race at first attempt.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of that victory, therefore, McLaren Special Operations (MSO) has announced the release of limited edition which will only be available in 50 cars and all will be coup├ęs.

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
