Photos: Victorian Funeral

Happy Halloween! What better way to kick off today than to post some incredible images from multiple Emmy Award-winning photographer Lenny Stucker, taken during the “Mourning the Victorian Way: A Funeral Reenactment and Graveyard Tour” in Southampton on Saturday. Hosted by the Southampton Historical Museums and Research Center, the event began at Rogers Mansion. From there, the “mourners” carried the casket in a processional, as an actual 19th-century funeral would, down the streets of the village and headed to the North End Cemetery for burial. Not only was this super interesting to-do educational, it also featured a ton of our East End friends. Cool. Wish I could have been there but these pictures are so good it’s like we didn’t miss a thing!
