So I know you all are going to LOVE this post....
Magical aren't they? I just can't get enough of these misty photographs from the past.
The costumed ones were taken by Alfonse Van Besten who had a penchant for medieval maidens it seems. Obviously, he's my favorite for that very reason. What a clever clever man. 

All of these photographs were taken during the early 1900's using one of the first methods for color photos available to photographers: the autochrome process. To read more visit here
