The Largest Collection Of Its Type Ever Assembled

 

All produced from the late 1800s through the 1940s, Principle Trading offers a meticulously-curated archive of over 20,000 'Realphoto French Fantasy Postcards' - Some of the finest photography that the world has ever seen, all colored by hand.

The word 'Fantasy,' or 'Fantasie' comes from the fact that while these are photographic images, they are of fantasy, studio-staged situations, rather than slices of actual life.

THE ARCHIVE WILL BE UNVEILED TO THE PUBLIC IN 2018
