Fairy Photo Postcards from  c 1870-1900’s

This group of images are early photographs of fairy costumes, poses and similar. This gallery shows various early techniques being used alongside the photography of the models, such as hand painting colors, very early photo montage, different developing techniques, sepia and cyanotypes effects and so on.

These images are charming and unique, coming from the very beginnings of photography. The images shown are a cross selection of the times, and there are many more similar images available via eBay, etsy, postcard sellers and similar venues.
