Picturesque Holland in 1890 is Much More Beautiful Than We Could Have Imagined

These photochrom images combine the best of lithographic printing and photography, and they were cutting edge in their day. The look is something that goes beyond the hand-tinted prints of competitors’ and the machine printing ensures a consistent color palette for each picture. These quaint scenes of daily life are captured beautifully in these pictures, like time capsules from the 19th century.
