Oh Joy!

Look what I found online? Hundreds of fashion photos taken at the Longchamps Racecourse, officially known as L’Hippodrome de Longchamps, in Paris from the year 1900 through to 1919. Look at the lovely people and their fancy fashions! What I would give to see these photos in colour. You can still get a great sense of texture and materials from these photos. I could wear just about every outfit in this collection.
