Women Beauty From Around The World In 100-Year-Old Postcards

Published 3 years ago

As the old saying goes – beauty fades. Thankfully now we have cameras to stop that beauty in time. And now photography has been here long enough so we could do this 100-year-old throwback to the most beautiful women around the world.

Photographed back in the 1900s and 1910s these postcards have immortalized the unique beauty of women from different walks of life and ethnicities. Thanks to Flickr user PostMan, who has been gathering a collection of these beauties, we now have the chance to travel back in time and see how we compare to them.

Wonder how the models would look now? Maybe something like Emiko – a 93-year old modelling grannie.
