People during the Victorian era were just like anyone else. They had hopes and dreams. They loved to spend time with their families and enjoy their hobbies. They were curious about life and its mysteries and wanted to learn all they could in the time they had. But for some reason, almost anytime someone photographed Victorian folks, it turned out looking super creepy.

There were some skin-crawling fads taking hold at the time. Spirit photography, mentalism and seances, headless photos, post-mortem family portraits, and a general macabre sense of humor all lent themselves to photos that would make most of us join a convent. Make sure you read this list with the lights on.
