“Pictures After Death” and “A Beautiful Way to Go” Together Mark Green-Wood Cemetery’s 175th Anniversary

Images from Tuesday evening’s lecture on PostMortem Photography by Dr. Stanley B. Burns at the Museum of the City of New York and snapshots at the opening reception of “A Beautiful Way to Go: New York’s Green-Wood Cemetery

Dr. Burns lectured in front of a full-house Tuesday evening on PostMortem Photography and Memorialization in 19th Century America at the Museum of the City of New York. The hour-long presentation was recorded by C-Span for American History TV (stay tuned for more information!). The event followed a week after the opening reception commemorating Green-Wood Cemetery’s 175th Anniversary, a New York iconic institution. 

But enough about accolades, let’s look at some snapshots.
