The Art of Mourning: 19th Century Postmortem & Memorial Photography Lecture
Saturday, November 4, 2017 at 2:00pm

Norwalk Historical Society Museum

Photos from beyond the grave!

Join Elizabeth Burns, of the nationally renown Burns Archive and historic photo consultant for THE KNICK & MERCY STREET, for an intimate look at The Art of Mourning: 19th Century Postmortem & Memorial Photography".

People used photography to memorialize dead loved ones with a reverence little understood today. Learn how these photographs were a normal part of the culture, and  how they are testament to a time when the magic of photography offered the hope of extending relationships. Rare postmortem photographs from the Burns Archive will be incorporated into the lecture.

Please note that the lecture will take place upstairs in the museum and at this time there is no elevator. Limited seating available!

The Norwalk Historical Society Museum is located at 141 East Avenue. Parking is available at Norwalk City Hall, 125 East Avenue.  The museum is in the red brick house with blue double front doors, next to the Norwalk Health Department.
