Scribner’s Catskill Lodge

Following a major renovation, Scribner’s Catskill Lodge is now a sophisticated Upstate New York retreat with chic designer interiors, creative amenities, and gourmet Alpine-inspired cuisine.

Overlooking the Catskill Mountains, its contemporary, all-white rooms come with sleek built-in furnishings, lofted sleeping spaces, and dark maple floors covered with vintage rugs. Some of the suites have private terraces and fireplaces, and all beautifully appointed bathrooms are decorated with terracotta tiles.

Prospect, the hotel’s gourmet restaurant, serves locally inspired cuisine with an artistic twist, and the lovely onsite event spaces include an intimate whiskey lounge, a beautifully curated library, and a couple of outdoor fields complete with scenic mountain views and open-air fire pits.

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.
