V Morean Cleavr photo of seated baby from Victorian period

Of course it is heart breaking to consider the untimely death of a baby. It is also creepy for us to discover these photographs of deceased infants. But this was apparently something of the norm in the Victorian period. Happily, I can share a very much alive little girl of the period, similarly posed on cushion. She is a bit older. Baby in White
