Photographed back in the s and s these postcards have immortalized the unique beauty of women from different walks of life and ethnicities. As the old saying goes — beauty fades. Thankfully now we have cameras to stop that beauty in time. And now photography has been here long enough so we could do this year-old throwback to the most beautiful women around the world.

Although the standard has changed, we are safe to say that some beauty is considered timeless, no matter the period. The first two decades of the 20th century was a period when the image of female beauty was going through a transitional period, influenced by the emergence of photography, cinema, and the mass media.
