Came across these wonderful vintage photographs/photo-cards in an antiques store in Matlock earlier. There was a box full of them but these two caught my eye. Managed to resist buying them to try and save pennies (even though I ended up then finding something else I liked and spending more than I would have on the photographs…), but I do love the style of them.
This photo-card however, I did buy, on an earlier visit to the same store. I just love it. She was a stage actress named ‘Jessie Bateman’ and this was her costume for a performance called ‘The Fairy’s Dilemma’. It would be wonderful to create some vintage style portrait shots like this of some of today’s modern performers.
