There are only a few really good color fashion photos from the late 1920s. Back in 2011 we featured some amazing color photographs of 1920s women in mostly rural or village settings by Clifton R Adams, and it’s hard to get away from these charming photos shot in Autochrome Lumière. Other photographers featured here include Orren R Louden and Maynard Owen Williams.
Thanks to the National Geographic Creative for preserving and uploading these rare images of the fleeting 1920s flappers.
