The 1920s in black and white












Believe me when I tell you that I see a lot of old photographs in the course of any given week. Every now and again though, among the dross, there leaps out at you a group of photos which, whilst they may really be no more than snapshots, are head and shoulders above the rest.

It may be that they are taken by someone with a better photographic eye. There may be a little more technical skill involved. The subjects many be more intersting. It may be a combination of all of those. Like these... there is something so evocative I thought in these five photos. The bathing photos look like they are taken at the edge of infinity and the piano picture in particular, so brilliantly 1920s.
