This collection of PhotoChrom postcards gives a fascinating glimpse of life in Europe in the late 19th –early 20th Century, La Belle Époque.
Developed before the spread of colour photo printing, Photochrom was a method of producing colorized black and white photographs. These images, rendered in evocatively nostalgic colour, show the peace and prosperity of a Europe before World War One. While visually charming these postcards are a moving souvenir of a period of optimism in Europe’s monumental and ubiquitous history.
