Charming Paper Moon Portraits Take Us Back in Time

There are few backdrops that could ever make us smile as much the paper moons of yesteryear. From about 1910-1945 these fun decorations lined the studios of photographers and bedecked booths at fairs, dances, and bazaars. From dour-looking men to toddlers giggling, these paper moon portraits take us back in time. Have a look for yourself and see if you aren’t just as charmed as we are!
