An Irish Beauty (Circa 1910)

  1. That she indeed. The description at the top of the page has me intrigued. Was this a series in a magazine, a book, a postcard collection? Whatever it is, it's certainly a lovely premise.

    1. I think it came from an issue of Every Woman's Encyclopaedia. They were a set of books published between 1910 and 1912. I'm not sure if this was a regular series or not, but the books are available on the Internet Archive. They make for fascinating reading, as they cover a wide range of topics (the usual fashion, needlework, cooking but also things like self defence, first aid, history, law, etc)

  2. Gorgeous for sure. Edwardian pictures are the most beautiful I think
