Street Style 1906

Edward Linley Sambourne was a professional illustrator and cartoonist, but his hobby was photography. He took pictures of women on the streets of England to document their choice of dress, but rarely did the subject know he was snapping the pictures! Sambourne's method would be a privacy issue today, but as the photographs are now over a hundred years old, they are a catalog of what women of the time looked like in their natural habitat.
