Ballet dancers from late 1800's. Antique postcard to enjoy and use in collage art work.

Hi everyone!! So glad you have stopped by for a visit.
 After finding so many great images I am anxious to share them with you all.
What should be the theme for this post... hmm.
Ballet dancers! All the pictures are from antique postcards. A few are pre 1900.

Just love the red dress.

English circa?

I just do not think of a ballerina smoking! Then I remembered one time at the airport, a group of incredible looking men waiting outside the terminal. It turned out they were ballet dancers from Russia and they were all smoking. After such a long flight they probably needed a cigarette!  It was a real treat seeing and talking to them.
I really like this post for some reason and hope you do too. Have fun using them in your projects.
Much love, Louise
