10 Incredibly Creepy Vintage Pictures Of Medical Students Posing With Cadavers

Medical science isn't what it used to be, and that's a good thing. A lot has changed about how we approach injury and disease in the last 150 years. Perhaps most importantly, though, is how doctor training has changed. Prospective doctors used to be limited to whatever diseases were happening in the area. For practical examinations, they had to make due with whatever cadavers they could get their hands on.

Oddly enough, it was also during this time that photography was coming into fashion. Groups of medical students somehow got it into their heads that it would be fun to pose for photographs with their cadavers.

The results are actually quite freaky.

1. Even cadavers love playing cards.

2. I'm not sure if that saying is meant to be heartfelt or ironic...

3. Are they wearing garbage bags?
4. Hard at work.

5. The vultures love it.
6. "Wave to the camera."
7. This one is really disturbing.
8. It probably doesn't smell very good in there.
9. Say goodbye to this mortal coil.

10. A room of death. Literally.

 I can just imagine what sort of controversy these pictures would spark if they were taken today. Yet somehow, these guys managed to get away with it back then. Perhaps this is because there was no Snapchat or Instagram to post on.
