Shrouded Corpse, 1853

This illustration of a corpse in its shroud came from an advertisement for undertaker in Louisville, Kentucky, in 1853. While today this image might not pull in many funeral service customers, in 1853 it was common for funerals to be held in the family home, so this was not an unfamiliar site to most folks.
