Victorian Mourning Photos

I'm on vacation right now (have been for the past week and a half, so that's why I've been away). In St. John's Newfoundland, and I was walking around today, doing some shopping. Found an amazing antiques shop, and bought mainly old photos from the late 1800s. One really neat thing about the Victorian photos is that everyone is dressed in their best attire... Anyways, these are things I had scanned back at home, so here they are:

Mrs. Howes in mourning dress, c. 1860s

"Four Crying Women", c. 1878

Victorian Mourning Dress, c. 1880

All scanned from the book "Gothic - Dark Glamour"
