Welcome

Take a look around Europe around 1900, the time when wars had not yet done their devastating work and there were no business sites yet.
All photos on this site have been produced in color according to the Autochrome or Photochrome process, with black-and-white photos subsequently provided with color.
Most of the photos made using this technique date from the period between 1890 and 1920, so all images on this site are usually at least 100 years old.
