"Ask A Mortician" Series

A wonderful series.  Everything you ever wanted, thought of or need to know about death, dying and funerals!

Can you believe it?  James Dean in a Coffin,  photographed  by Dennis Stock 1955
In seeing this you can appreciate the photos of a jocular James Dean  visiting a funeral parlor in 1955, taken jauntily enough by famed LIFE photographer Dennis Stock, seven months before the star was killed in a collision while driving his Porsche Spyder to Salinas, California for a race. 

Creepy? or perhaps a subconscious view into the future?
