Mondays at the Mess – Monday 14th May 2018 – 11am, Lecturer: Orla Fitzpatrick

'Momento mori : Post-mortem photography and child mortality in early 20th century Dublin'

Since its invention in 1839, photography has been used to record and commemorate the dead. Did this happen in Dublin? Examples are rare; however, evidence shows that the city's photographers provided such a service.

Drawing on mortality statistics, newspaper accounts and detailed case studies this talk will examine post-mortem portraits of Dublin children who died in the early twentieth century.
