Woman in a half-couch casket
Anonymous, North American
silver gelatin print

A glossy silver gelatin showing a body laid out in an open half-couch casket surrounded by numerous floral tributes. The names of the people who sent some of the flowers may be read in metallic letters on the attached gauzy ribbons; these names include Della, Tommaso and, on the far left, Loreto Tafrate.

Photographer and location unidentified but almost certainly North American. 

The print measures 6" by 8" (15.2 cm by 20.3 cm).
