Post mortem photo of little Ella?
« Reply #420 on: August 01, 2011, 11:50:22 AM »
So people liked to make post mortem photos and you can find them often of Royalty (in coffins)- is there one of little Ella in her coffin? Or did they never take one of her.
I ve seen one of Frittie before and none of Alice and little May.  Maybe those photos were too painful (Alice and May)? But why did they take one of Frittie then?
But I must admit that for my mind people had a very good attitude against death- how to say it- well they took their time to say farewell by placing them in their homes- today it s out of the house and gone- you know what I mean? (excuse my maybe strange view, but I m a nurse and sometimes people do not even stay beside their dying fathers, friends etc.- very bad).

When you look at her eyes- she must have made a wonderful Princess later in her life if she only had the chance to grow up. But she looks really much like Victoria.
Like my Grannie would say: Such a dear little child!

Yes. Elizabeth would have been quite a character if she did grow up (based upon her childhood). Sadly it did not happen....

Charming picture of her at the sofa. I heard she also captured the heart of Queen Victoria too.

This is a postcard I own. It says 1902.
Elizabeth is famous for looking like her mother. But to me in this photo, she looks like Ernie too.

Yes. She had her mother's eyes and her father's features.

There's so much wisdom and maturity in her young eyes...tall for her age too it seems :)

Yes. She was a special child. Ernie did not get over that loss...

I don't think Alice, May or Elizabeth would have had post mortem pictures taken because of the risk of infection.  They all died of highly contagious diseases.
Grand Duchess Alice of Hesse:  "Each year brings us nearer to the Wiedersehen [reunion with the dead], though it is sad to think how one's glass is running out, & how little good goes with it, compared to the numberless blessings we receive.  Time goes incredibly fast."

I agree. Not very pleasant. No tradition for death pictures anyway. Alice did not have a death photo...

I hope this picture wasn't posted yet.
Must be around 1896 I think.

A very cute picture. I wonder if her letters to her parents survive.
