Step back to the final years of the 19th century with this selection of beautiful vintage original photographs offered for sale by French seller photovintagefrance.
These are photochrom or photochrome images from an early photographic process where colourized images were produced from black-and-white negatives. The colours appear almost dreamlike to the modern eye. Reds in particular seem warm but muted. Greens have a certain dark shade to them. They almost look like paintings. There is no doubt that you are looking at an image that is more than 100 years old. This selection features people and landscapes - both eye-catching for different reasons. The landscapes have no tourists, no Starbucks or no cars. No-one is smiling - the term "smile for the camera" has yet to be coined. Look closely at the clothing, which varies from Sunday best to everyday garb of working people.
