LAYAWAY for Faciasmom - Antique circus horse photo postcard, 1900s, very rare - Please do not buy unless you're Faciasmom
Wonderful and very, very rare this hand tinted French photo postcard of a lady circus artist (Mademoiselle Marville) on her horse. She performed at the Moulin Rouge in Paris the Belle Epoque era (1900-1905). Photographer: Walery, Paris Postally not used, with undivided backside so pre-1905
Ca.1860, and NOT by Eugene Atget. This has been passed around labelled "The Crinoline Shop, by Eugéne Atge, 1880," but that is obviously wrong. Eugéne Atget (note the final T) was born in 1857 and did not start taking photographs until the late 1880s, nor his famous street scenes until the end of the century. This image is clearly between 1860 and 1864 by the fashions - but it does appear to be French.
