Our Favorite Photo of the Week

There were a number of contenders among the new inventory we picked up over the past week, but here is our favorite newly-acquired vintage photograph:

Gorgeous Early 1900s RPPC - Young Woman in Edwardian Attire

It is an early 1900s real photo postcard (RPPC) of a lovely young woman, dressed in classic Edwardian style. She has on a beautiful white blouse, tucked in tightly at the waist, with slightly poofy sleeves, a wide, flat collar, and an inverted fan of lace between the edges of the collar. The look is pulled together by a fashionable metal bar pin at the neck. And don't you just love her hairdo? Although pulled carefully up and back , it also has a sort of loose and untamed look to it.

The photo itself is just stunning. No matter how many thousands of vintage photographs we see, we never cease to be amazed by the sharpness and clarity of photographs that date back more than one-hundred years!

  1. It's so amazing that such old photos remain to be so beautiful to look at. And sometimes, it seems, the older the photo, the better it is! This is a beauty - definitely. =)
