Fin de Siècle

Sunday, July 1898, originally uploaded by donna di mondo.

A beautiful photo from 1898, which was purchased from an antique store by my good flickr friend Donna. Their names, from left to right, are: Sarah, Hans, Walter and Emma. Most photos from this era are not in this kind of condition, nor are they as sharp or as well developed/printed as this one.  It’s a real gem – makes me want to start collecting old pictures.

I suggest a look at it full size.

Flickr has a pool full of pics that are at least 100 years old – see here.
