"This darling little girl appears as if she is a delicate china doll sitting on a shelf. Notice that she is not sitting as one normally would, but is turned to the side so that that a stand can be used to hold her in place. The stand is plainly visible underneath the chair. Also, notice that not only her hands, but her fingers are meticulously placed, as if the photographer had plenty of time to get them "just so" without worry that they would be moved. Her thin little arms have no muscle tone whatsoever and have been carefully placed into position. The bottom of her elegant dress has been placed into a strange position as it actually extends well beyond the seat of the chair, hiding whatever contraption is also helping to hold her in place. Her sad little face is listless, featuring a drooping mouth and swollen cheeks. This sweet little angel could have easily succumbed to mumps as this disease was a major killer during the Victorian era. The only thing out of place is just one precious little ringlet, as if someone had brushed against her accidentally. This child was dearly loved by her family for them to have gone to such great lengths to preserve her memory."
