So, this is the original post mortem daguerreotype photograph featured in Crimson Peak. It has been floating around the internet for years and I recognized it right away.
The dag dates to around 1850, so quite out of date for the film, which is set in 1901.
Sold at Be-Hold auctions several years ago. I wonder who owns it now, and if they realize a photo in their collection was featured in a major blockbuster?
