I’VE BEEN PRODUCING THIS BLOG FOR LONG ENOUGH THAT I HAVE COLLECTED SOME BRILLIANT VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPHY THAT DESERVES TO BE REVISITED IN MY BIGGEST POST OF IMAGES EVER. ALL MY IMAGES ARE FROM MY PERSONAL VINTAGE COLLECTION. SOME IMAGES ARE OLD SNAP SHOTS, SOME ARE POSTCARDS AND SOME ARE COLLECTED FROM MY VINTAGE MAGAZINE COLLECTION. IN SOME CASES I HAVE CLEANED UP THE IMAGES OR ADDED CAPTIONS. I HAVE POSTED THE MAJORITY OF THESE IMAGES IN THE PAST, BUT THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THAT YOU CAN SEE THEM IN ONE GLORIOUS POST. I WILL BE SHOWCASING PHOTOGRAPHY AND ART WORKS FROM THE EDWARDIAN ERA, THE 1900S, 1920S, 1930S, 1940S & 1950S. IF YOUR IN THE MOOD FOR SOME EYE CANDY THEN GET SCROLLING NOW!
THE YOUNG GIRL ALL IN WHITE IN THIS VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPH APPEARS TO BE EITHER DRESSED FOR HER SENIOR PROM OR A CORONATION. I FOUND THIS PICTURE ON A REAL PHOTOGRAPHIC POSTCARD FROM THE 1920S. IT WAS PROBABLY A ONE OFF PICTURE CARD MADE TO COMMEMORATE THIS SPECIAL OCCASION.
THE STYLISH YOUNG WOMAN IN THE TURBAN LOOKS TO BE DRESSED FOR A DANCE OR PROM IN A FLOOR LENGTH VELVET GOWN THAT LOOKS TO BE FROM THE 1930S BASED ON THE FASHION OF HER MAKEUP AND DRESS.THIS DAPPER FELLOW WITH THE HANDLE BAR MOUSTACHE IS A CHEEKY CHAP FROM THE EDWARDIAN ERA.
Fabulous vintage photography showcases retro fashion, style, beauty, clothing, makeup & hairstyles.Fashion may change with the seasons but style is eternal. Any fashion that was ever any good will see a resurgence in later eras.
The fashion & beauty look of the 1920s flapper had a resurgence during the 1960s & is heading toward another reappearance in 2013.
The gypsy mignon style returned as boho chic. The corset has reappeared in steampunk fashion. Victorian & Edwardian era mens & women’s fashions have seen a resurgence within the steampunk aesthetic. The moustache has had many reincarnations through the 70s & beyond.
The huge and ever growing style of steampunk takes inspiration from the victorian era.
The Edwardian era was the last time period that corsets where an absolute essential to the fashion of the day.
