Christina.


These were taken in 1913.









  Mind absolutely blown. Evidently I've been imagining the world before about 1952 as being in black and white. Not so, clearly. I've fallen into a little pit of googling the technique they used back then (~autochrome~). I won't do as good a job explaining as Wiki, but I will tell you it uses potatoes. Potatoes! 
  I feel like this is the obvious thing to say here, but some of these shots look weirdly of-the-moment. Well, maybe not quite but there's a definite timeless vibe going on..
