I'm trying to make a project and I need a photo. Something like the lady in this: http://img1.etsystatic.com/000/0/5500039/il_fullxfull.293913845.jpg would be perfect. I'm googling things like "vintage photos" and "old time photos" and "vintage photos girl" and all sorts of things but I can't find any images like this to print.

Doesn't have to be a huge file but I am making an altoid shrine and I need a base image of a lady like this. It's not my normal thing so I'm hoping someone will have some links and/or keywords to help.

Thanks in advance!

You might find something useable at Alpha Stamps.  They have some great collage sheets of old photos over there.  Good luck!

You could try the Library of Congress website?

There's also a lot of great collections of Edwardian and 20's photographs on Pinterest, such as this one, this one, and this one, not to mention this and this!

Hi phoenixfiredesigns...

Have you tried keywords: Female ephemera...Edwardian Woman/Women...Turn of the Century Photos...?

Sometimes eBay has lots of vintage/antique photos which never get bid on or go for practically no money.

You never know.  GOOD LUCK!
