Summer of 1906: The Candid Street photos of Edward Linley Sambourne
These telling photos from the streets of London were taken in 1906 by Edward Linley Sambourne. There is a full collection posted online at the Kensington and Chelsea library. Just viewing these amazingly candid shots brings a sense of humanity to fashion and society from over a hundred years ago. Viewing the collection is a time machine moment.
