100-Year-Ago Studio Photography – 41 Vintage Photos of Paper Moon Portraits From the 1900s and 1910s

Long before Instagram, photo booths or even the common ownership of a camera,
you could get your photograph taken sitting on the moon. Often a fixture at
fairs, parties and carnivals, people sat in the crescent of a smiling “paper
moon,” as if lifted to the stars.

A photographic phenomena primarily of the early half of the 20th century, it
captivated the imagination of a world pre-Photoshop and gave many a memorable
image of great times.

Here's a collection of interesting paper moon portraits from between the
1900s and 1910s.
