The past comes to life


One of my Twitter friends posted a link to this blog and I love it. I have always been interested in street fashion and to see it from 100 years ago is a real treat.
Edwardian photographic subjects usually look very sombre and to see these girls smiling is a breath of fresh air, you can almost hear them chatting and laughing. Edward Linley Sambourne was truly ahead of his time.
Another great set of photos of Victorians smiling can be found here
