LADY WITH AN UMBRELLA 1920S

red-umbrella 1920sI LOVE THIS RETRO PHOTOGRAPH FROM THE 1920S. THIS PICTURE IS AN ORIGINAL VINTAGE SNAPSHOT. I FOUND IT IN A FADED AND TATTERED STATE. I CLEANED IT UP AND DARKENED THE PRINT. I HAND COLOURED THE RED UMBRELLA. THE FASHIONS OF THE ERA ARE HIGHLIGHTED IN THIS WOMANS MARY JANE SHOES AND CLOCHE HAT.

RETRO FRENCH GLAMOUR PHOTOGRAPHY

deco-lady-frenchTHIS VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPH IS ORIGINAL 1920S. IT WAS HAND TINTED IN A TIME BEFORE COLOUR PHOTOGRAPHY WAS IN USE. THIS IS RETRO FRENCH GLAMOUR AT IT’S BEST. THE WOMAN IS THE CENTRE OF THE PICTURE, WITH HER FINELY PLUCKED AND PENCILED EYEBROWS AND CUPIDS BOW MOUTH. THE HAIRSTYLE AND MAKEUP IS PURE GLAMOUR ALONG WITH THE LONG STRING OF PEARLS WHICH WERE A POPULAR FASHION ACCESSORY OF THE ERA.
