This boy named Herre died in 1873 at the age of two years and a half. The photo was found in his father's diary, which mentions the following: "We had one portrait made in his bed after he died by Ephraim. Later he put the head on a portrait of his child, wearing Herre's clothes, which became quite good". A very unusual example of early photoshopping avant la lettre!

Fantastic cabinet card. Is it a Momento Mori? The older child does have a very slack face, but is he/she dead? Is the blurring arm caused by the baby having jarred it? It was listed as PM, and indeed placing a dead sibling with alive ones was a common tableau for a memorial photo. Anyone want to wade in on this one?
