I'm sure most people know about the existence of modern day street style blogs, but did you know that they are not necessarily a new concept? In 1906 Edward Linley Sambourne, an illustrator who need reference photos for people in motion, took to the streets of England an France with a camera and covertly took pictures of people on the street. In effect he acurately documented the fashion of the period and created the precursor to the street style blog. You can read up on him and view more of his photographs HERE. In the meantime enjoy a few of my favorite shots.
