Funeral rites

Taking photos at funerals isn’t usually considered in good taste but here is a photos taken in the early 1900’s. Note the rough stone walls and the beautiful tapestry hung to conceal them for the formal photos. Note too the traditional caps of Ciociara worn by the older ladies. Thank you Linda for sharing this photo taken in Fontechiari.
