PhotoChrom Postcards of Europe: La Belle Époque

  • Perth Cultural Centre

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.

Screening Daily: 
2-8 May: 10am
