Ethnic Photos - Gypsy

Some rare early 1900's Gypsy photographs!

Likely photographed Circa 1915Likely photographed Circa 1915Although most of the photo album these photos came from had generic portraits of a woman who was dressed in early 1900's clothing, I was very pleasantly surprised to find these rare turn of the 20th century photos of a Gypsy family and their encampment of horse drawn wagons in the back of the album.

The images below represent the best of the album and I think you'll agree that artistic quality of the portraiture is outstanding on the majority of the photos.

Little Girls Photos - Turn of the 20th Century

Great photos of Little Girls with Toys, Carriages, Bicycles and Props

Little girl with antique tricycleLittle girl with antique tricycleAmong the many areas of antique photography collecting that we have interest in, we especially like old photographs of little girls engaged in every day activity, or posing with a favorite toy or bicycle.

In this first issue we will look at some great antique photos of cute little girls photographed from about the 1880's through about 1910.

Old photos of little girls from the turn of the 20th century seem to have an extra charm that newer photos, even from the early 20th century just don't seem to capture, and we prize every new photo of a little girl posing with a toy, carriage, bicycle, or prop that we can add to our collection.
