Books such as "Magic: Stage Illusions and Scientific Diversion including Trick Photography" published in 1897 contained diagrams for creating illusions such as decapitations, multiples, and spirit photographs.  The Victorian version of photoshop fun and the resulting photos are still creepy today!

Friday Foster: Super Heroine & Fashion Photographer!

from Barbara Levine Collection / available for purchase on Project B The Friday Foster comic strip debuted on January 18, 1970 in the Chicago Tribune and ran until 1974.

Friday Foster was the first mainstream syndicated comic strip to feature a Black woman in the lead role. In 1972, Dell created a one-of-a-kind Friday Foster comic book edition (pictured above).

Antique Cabinet Card Photographs

Two women, one dressed as a man, c. 1905, John Emberson © National Media Museum / SSPL. Creative Commons BY-NC-SA "Cabinet cards, such as the example above,  are photographs mounted on stiff pieces of cardboard. They were introduced in the 1860s and gradually superseded the smaller carte de visite format. The front of the card is usually printed or embossed with the photographer’s details, and the back of the cabinet card is often printed with elaborate designs. The popularity of the cabinet card waned around the turn of the century, particularly after the introduction of the photographic postcard, but they were still being produced right until the First World War." via the National Media Museum Blog   Read more antique photographs, barbara levine, cabinet cards, vintage lesbian photographs, vintage photographs « Newer articles 1 3 4 5 6 7 9 Older articles »
