Antique Photograph Theater Girl Circa 1900's Paris


Here is a antique photograph of a Theater girl in Paris during the early 1900's. This photo is especially neat because it was hand tinted. Hand tinting a photo is a neat process because its applied by brush. This gave the photos during this period more realistic coloring.

Vintage Snapshot Photograph Girl Dancing


Here's a very different and unique vintage snapshot photograph dating to around the 1940's maybe even into the 1950's. What caught my eye about this photo is that the girl seems to be dancing in the middle of a field. The landscape scene really sets this vintage photo off. The photo measures 2.75 x 4.5 inches. However a crease lies right in the middle of the photo. I'm not completely sure, but maybe another photo from this set is out there somewhere. If any one has another photo from this set, I would love to see it!

Vintage Children Photos Circa 1890-1920


Here is a lovely vintage french photograph of 3 children. Seems like 2 of them are sleepy and the other is eating. This photograph is was most likely taken for a postcard company during the late 1910's to early 1920's. This is a great example of the silent type of humor used in during the turn of the century.


If I'm not mistaken, written at the top of this old photo is German. So I'm thinking this is a vintage photograph of an German child during the early 1900's. The photograph was also hand tinted to give color and depth within the child and background. This was a lovely find.


I'm not too sure about this history of this photograph. I just thought it was cool because the child is standing in a chair and to the right side is somebody holding the baby up. Mostly this is an unusual photograph mainly because someone holding the baby up. Either way, I think its a cool photo

1920's Sepia Photograph Zeigfeld Follie Girl


1920s gelatin silver photographs that were used by the Exhibit Supply Company of Chicago Illinois in the creation and manufacture of Arcade / Mutoscope Cards which were dispensed in coin operated arcade machines during the early 20th century. These photographs were created by top photographers of the era some are marked  "Alta Studios" while the majority are unidentified.  These photographs were posed and shot for the specific purpose of creating vending machine cards, the images are daring for the day and pushing the societal envelope to be sure--these reflected popular culture tastes and perhaps created it in many regards. The cards were given flirty jazz-age titles that were often times double-entendre based and the arcade cards were collected and circulated as trading cards. There were many genres - sports stars, movie stars, and of course, bathing beauties, burlesque performers and pin-up girls. These original unique proof photographs are incredible as you will see - we are excited about these to say the least.
