Edward Linley Sambourne - 1906 Street Style

You may well have seen these photos after The Daily Mail published them recently, but I just had to share them in case you missed out! The Library Time Machine  published these street style-esque photos back in March, and they're simply fabulous.

I adore this shop girl reading a book......it makes her seem so human.

Another lady reading. Awesome.

Sambourne also headed to the beach and snapped what people were wearing.

He also headed to Paris in 1906

Photos like this allow us to remember people from times gone by with a more human quality. They weren't staid and still like many of the photos we remember them by.

You must check out the library's blog if you find these fascinating! Here are some ladies in Portobello Road in the 1950s looking divine.
