I made a really nice find in a flea market this summer... I bought a huge lot of vintage pictures (probably not original ones), this is a lot of Hollywood Portraits and movies scenes from the 30's thru the 50's, most from the 30'-40's. Some are in color but I really prefer the B&W ones. All these pictures are so glamorous!!!
First I was watching them at the Market to buy only perhaps 10 of them but each one was more beautiful than the other and it was so hard to choose. So we decided to take them all and we made an offer to the seller.
When we came back home we compted all these portraits and classed them depending of their era: more than 1350 pictures!!!!
These pictures are quite large about A4 format. Here are some examples from this treasure.
There are not so many men pictures, but I'm just pleased with that because I love actresses' portraits the most. So many things to watch on women: dresses, hairs, hats, shoes, make-up, jewels...
Look at this amazing dress!!!
Some of these pictures show how amazing the 40's fashion could be.
For me who is a vintage hats lover, I was able to see really amazing hat so well pictured!
In this lot, there are also some funny and cute pictures like these ones :
The are also a lot of couple pictures, here are some examples.
A lot of great great hair styles!
Some pin-up showing their best bathing suits!!!
Some vintage brides!!!
Some WWI memories.
A lot of dance scenes from 30's and 40's musicals.
If I can find a good hair dresser (still not find a good one here), I choose these 2 ladies for their hair style, I think it could fit me, quite the same cut I already have but shorter and curlier.
I cannot show you all these pictures but I thing with those examples, you can see how amazing this collection is. I think I prefer starlets than great stars, their pictures are always more fun.
I made some Hollywood Portraits with my Husband in Rhythm Riot weekender some years ago. Here is a 2004 picture by Gordon Ayres.
Do you like vintage Hollywood Portraits?
