Post mortem, child with rattle

Carte de visite by S.C. Landon of New Milford, Conn. A deceased child lay in a baby carriage, grasping a rattle in the right hand. The simple backdrop and carpet suggests that this image was made inside the photographer's studio, perhaps on the way to his or her funeral and burial.
