Antique Funeral / Burial Photograph

This photo kind of grabbed me when I was sifting through items to post.  I sure wish there was a date on the back.   The sepia tone and the silver patina at the edges is just beautiful.  I also included some closeups of the structures in the far background of the photos.  Click on each to see a larger version!

Beautiful photo! I particularly like the ornate fencing around the grave.

I agree. I always drool when I see that form of ironwork still around to buy.

It's a sad yet beautiful and evocative photograph.
Visiting from Sunday stamps - still posting and continuing!
