Edgar Allan Poe lying in his casket.

There were no funeral pictures taken of Edgar Poe. He was hastily buried and the cost was borne by a person not even of Poe’s family. Not to mention a photo wouldn’t be this good, 1849 was less then 10 years from the creation of photography which was mostly daguerreotype. This photo is maybe 80-100 years old and is of a young man in his 20’s, not about to turn 41 and embalming didn’t exist in 1849. Nice try whoever posted this.
Thanks for that break down , all that’s needed in commenting, I really thought that was him smh
