She's one of the world's best-preserved bodies: Rosalia Lombardo, a two-year-old Sicilian girl who died of pneumonia in 1920. "Sleeping Beauty," as she's known, appears to be merely dozing beneath the glass front of her coffin in the Capuchin Catacombs of Palermo, Italy. by Elisa Ayala

The photo was taken in 1910. It’s the last photograph taken of Florence Nightingale. (It's rare: she was reluctant throughout her life to be photographed.) It shows 90 year old Florence in her bedroom at her home in London. The photo was taken by Lizzie Caswall Smith. On the back of the photo Smith wrote, “Taken just before she died, house near Park Lane. The only photograph I ever took out of studio. I shall never forget the experience.” by beth

Maya Angelou doing a little reading in her dressing room before her performance at the Village Vanguard in New York City. Long before she was a poet and writer and the icon we know today, Dr. Angelou was a dancer and singer of folk and calypso songs (she even recorded an album in 1957 called “Miss Calypso” and appeared in the film “Calypso Heat Wave” that same year.

Brea writes, this photo of a shadow being was taken by a computer camera. The person whose home it was had some anomalous things going on and often felt that an unseen being was lurking. She left her computer web camera on for a few hours, recording the room, then went back and looked through the frames. This is what showed up on only two of them.

Maralal, Northern Kenya. This photo of an old Samburu woman was taken in the outskirts of Maralal in Northern Kenya. Asking her about her age, all she could tell was that she was born in the year after the big drought. "But age doesn't matter", she says. What matters is to have enough children, in order to keep a large herd of cattle. by Smartyns

Although she looks very much alive, she is not. This photo was taken of a young woman (possibly a teenager) not long after her death. If the photographer got there just before, or right after the death, it was easier to pose someone. Such a remarkable photo of a beautiful young lady who died in her prime. by tabu-sam

I love St. Bernadette!  The most spectacular of all the incorruptibles, St. Bernadette's miraculously preserved body remained buried in a damp grave for thirty years until the cause for beatification was taken up. To this day, the body of Bernadette is a profound source of inspiration and of mystery surrounding the ways of the Lord. The face of Bernadette is one of surreal beauty, and will remain for us always the face that gazed into the eyes by maria.t.rogers

For over 100 years, this photo was hidden in the private collection of the family of a crew member of the ship, Mackay Bennett, which served as a body recovery ship for the sunken Titanic. This photo, taken 9 days after Titanic sank, shows a mass funeral aboard Mackay Bennett for those whose bodies were recovered. The celebrant (draped in white) was Reverend Hind. After the service, the bodies were buried at sea. Body #177 was 28 year old fireman, William Mayo. by vivian

This picture was taken in a Civil War Camp near Washington DC in 1862. Interesting thing is that it shows a soldier with his wife and children. It is hard to say if the woman had just come to visit her husband, or if she was living there in the camp. Either way, it makes an interesting picture. by edna

GHOST GIRL! This is a photo taken in my grandparents backyard in the mid 70's. It was a birthday party for one of my aunts and there were a lot of kids around. When going through the photos a few days later when they were developed, everyone saw this face at the bottom of the photo but no-one knew who it was. That was until my grandma had a quick look and said "Oh, that looks like Maree." Maree had died about ten years prior to this photo being taken. by florence

Pre-mortem photo? Another Victorian habit: Your child contracts a fever, or you have reason to think an injury or illness may lead to death, you whisk the child off to a photographer. Yep, it happened and they were called Pre-mortem photos. Why suppose that is the case here? The inscription on the back of this tintype has the age and date of death. 3 years old.

As we struggle to find words to express the grief we feel at her loss, we hope you find some comfort in knowing that she was not alone at the time — she was surrounded by the elephants who have been her family & friends for the last 3 years. She died in the company of those who loved her and looked out for her. Rest in peace, dear friend. Photo: Lakhi (L) Coco (R) by marion
