She looks so peaceful. A "found" photo (in the Banks family album?), some information is known.

Sad that this beautiful young woman died so young. Wonder why?

Biggest killers of young adults were childbirth, TB, pneumonia, fevers, post strep kidney disease and rheumatic heart disease.

It could have been any number of things that took her young life. Before penicillin, a simple Infection (by today’s standards) was dangerous.

I live in a house that was built in the 1800’s. Seven out of the five children that lived in my house died from diphtheria in the late 1800’s 😥😥

Consumption was the term for TB, or any wasting disease. And true about flu, though prior to the epidemic in 1918 it wasn't usually hugely deadly except to children and the elderly. 1918 was different because it hit mostly young adults.

My reaction is always the same--what a waste! This beautiful girl probably died of something that can be cured today without too much effort. As bad as things often seem, we are so lucky to be alive in this age of advanced medicine where our children and young people are not routinely taken from us. A lot less grief and mourning in the post WWI 20th Century [except during WWII] than in the entire history of Mankind.

Not sure of her age, but she could have easily died in childbirth.

I have a couple of these pictures too. One of my grandmother who passed in the late 1920’s and one of a great-great grandfather.

The best memento mori photo yet. She is beautiful, serene and peaceful. I hope she had a good life, as short as it might have been.

CONSIDER THE TIME AND PLACE... Georgia--equals cotton, and cotton mills, pre-child labor laws. Children in Georgia began working barefoot in cotton mills by about age 5, there are many, many pictures... by the time they reached her age, they died with their lungs bleeding, full of cotton dust. So much for the White Privilege Myth.

No fan of coffin photos but this one is in a beautiful setting. The flowers and her garment give it elegance.
