INSPIRATIONAL RETRO FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY

ROSE TINTTHESE VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPHIC POSTCARDS HAIL FROM THE 1920’S & WERE PHOTOGRAPHED BEFORE THE DAYS OF COLOUR PHOTOGRAPHY & ¬†THEY WERE HAND TINTED TO GIVE THEM COLOUR & PIZAZZ. THE FASHION & HAIRSTYLES FROM THIS ERA ARE INSPIRATIONAL & FUN WHICH IS WHY I COLLECT THESE RETRO POSTCARDS & PHOTOGRAPHS.LIFE

VINTAGE WOMENS FASHION & PHOTOGRAPHY

THE WOMAN IN THIS PHOTOGRAPH LOOKS RATHER GHOSTLY AS SHE SEEMS TO FLOAT IN MID AIR IN HER PINK GOWN. THIS PHOTOGRAPH WOULD BE NEARING ONE HUNDRED YEARS OLD. WHEN THIS PHOTOGRAPH WAS TAKEN PHOTOGRAPHY WOULD HAVE BEEN A MIRACULOUS PROCESS & NEVER COULD THE PHOTOGRAPHER OR THEIR SUBJECT EVER HAVE IMAGINED SUCH THINGS AS THE INTERNET OR DIGITAL CAMERAS.facebook tag

RETRO PHOTOGRAPHY IN POSTCARDS, MAGAZINE ADVERTISEMENTS & VINTAGE PHOTO ALBUMS CAN BE A GREAT SOURCE OF FASHION HISTORY & AN INTERESTING PORTRAIT OF THE CHANGING FACE OF WOMEN THROUGHOUT THE DECADES
