A lot of those are the zghost book that Mac sent me for the Grim Reaper exchange last year

I don't care if they're obvious fakes, I think they're cool.

As you are now so once was I,
As I am now so you must be,
Prepare for death & follow me.

Me too, those are cool considering the age they were done in.

Actualy those are quite good. In the mid 19th century, photography was just comming into it's own, but all the negatives were shot on glass plates. There was no roll film back then. It also took for ever to make a proper exposure, and then the negative had to be processed in highly flamable chemicals. Just shooting and printing one image was a full time job that often involved hours of hard work. Mathew Brady was renouned for his coverage of the American Civil War. This was when fast photography was in it's infancy. The equipment was very bulky and hard to carry. The camera itself shot an 8x10 glass plate negative, and mounting it onto a tripod was like trying to do the same with your car. They were typicaly view cameras, so the photographer focused the image by looking at it upside down on a piece of ground glass. Then he would close the apreature, put in the plate, and then make the exposure, using his best guess as to f stop and shutter speed.

Very cool considering when they were created. I saw a program on this fairly recently actually, it was just sad and a shame that many of the people actually believed they were being photographed with spirits. It was all so people could make money.
