IllustratedPast.com is dedicated to bringing the past alive by exploring vintage photographs and illustrations. Its ever growing collection of old photos cover a period from the 1800s to the early 1920s, with some special selections from the 1930s and 40s as well.
We select photos based on historical importance as well as their ability to provide a window onto a bygone era. Sometimes we post photographs of important people such as generals, politicians and rulers. But more often than not, these vintage photographs depict ordinary, but nevertheless fascinating moments, in the lives of every day people.
So we invite you to begin an amazing journey back in time, browsing through old photos and pictures of people who are long gone, but who live on in a moment frozen in time.
