Guys, not every photo that has a stand showing is postmortem. The stands were often used in early photography even with living subjects (especially kids) because it’s hard to keep still long enough for the exposure needed back in the day. Lots of shots ARE postmortem, but not all of them. Look carefully and use logic - it’s usually pretty easy to tell. There, that pet peeve is off my chest. Thank you, and good night.
THIS. SO VERY THIS.
