Where a person is included in a "Turning scroll" it is often referred to as a memorial card but there are reasons why this may require further research.
  • There is a value premium on "memorial" related material and photographs marked as such should be regarded as suspect unless there is accompanying documentation or a clear indication on the card.
  • Some photographers, such as John D. Strunk (Reading, PA, USA), used scrolls and other designs for practically all their portraits and it can not be that all of them were memorials. (Thanks to Erin Waters on the Victorian Images group on Facebook, 9 April 2012, for this information.)
  • At other times portraits of the same person were made during a single sitting and appear in both normal mounts and scrolls.
Where there is a black background, motifs related with death or the photograph is a obviously a copy of an earlier photograph the possibility that it is a memorial card increases. I am seeking contemporary published examples from the catalogues of photographic supply houses for further evidence. (Alan Griffiths, 9 April 2012).
