Pidhirtsi Castle - The exterior was built with brick and stone. During the 17th century it was surrounded but vineyards and gardens, and had a grange, apiary, private zoo, a mill, and a trout pond. It was guarded by a moat with a drawbridge, fortified walls with bastions and iron cannons. At the entrance there is a marble plaque that reads in Latin: ‘A crown of military labours is victory, victory is triumph, triumph is rest’. The interior was initially richly furnished, with the western part of the castle being for guests and the eastern was private for the owners and servants. There was also a library, the Guardroom, knight’s room, and then suits with names like the Crimson Room, Chinese Room, Mirror Room, Green Room, and Yellow Room. The floors were made of marble tile and each room had a marble fireplace in it.

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.
