Non Liverpool photos

Life isn't all about the place you live or where born yeah? I personally like historic, interesting information, history and photos of other places, other people from yesteryear.

Like this collection of little gems. (Well they are to me)

Barbie, I thought you may find this article interesting.

Taken From Life: †The Unsettling Art of Death Photography

Photographs of loved-ones taken after they died may seem morbid to modern sensibilities. But in Victorian England, they became a way of commemorating the dead and blunting the sharpness of grief.

In images that are both unsettling and strangely poignant, families pose with the dead, infants appear asleep, and consumptive young ladies elegantly recline, the disease not only taking their life but increasing their beauty.

Victorian life was suffused with death. Epidemics such as diphtheria, typhus and cholera scarred the country, and from 1861 the bereaved Queen made mourning fashionable.

Trinkets of memento mori - literally meaning "remember you must die" - took several forms, and existed long before Victorian times.

Barbie

Thanks Alice, i did indeed find it interesting.

As we stand today, what the Victorians did seems weird, awful, morbid and plenty of other adjectives to describe their practices. However, it is what they did at that time, it's how they showed their respect. I personally think it's not the thing to do.

I do still find it fascinating though.

Thanks.

Science is now telling us life is eternal, mortality isn't. We all know the body dies but life goes on:

Life is eternal, Mortality isn't.
The twelve watts of energy that dwells in our brain, consciousness or soul, will be reborn into a new embryo and grow as a new person in a new family.
Loved ones, throughout eternity, will remain as soul mates.
Life is about accruing wisdom - wisdom that evolves with each continuation of being.
When a loved one passes they remain with you.
Just think of them and they will be there. Read Dr Robert Lanza, Biocentrism or the many world interpretation... It is all very interesting.

Did you read in the Newspapers that Muhammad Ali's heart kept beating.

Lovely photos Barbie and you had good weather.

Yes Alice, the weather was lovely. Blackpool sadly is in decline hotel, B+B wise but if you like the seaside then it's a nice place to wander around and I must say, ten out of ten for the shops.
