Miniature Photographs

Let's look at some more goodies from the Vintage Postcards and Paper Collectibles shows.

Packets of miniature souvenir photos like this were pretty popular in the 20s, 30s, and 40s and usually contained 10 - 20 real photographs, measuring 1.5" x 2.25" like this one. Some larger ones measured up to 3" x 5".

These packets are a pretty good quick reference if you're searching for images of a specific place, except they're usually not contemporary images.

Since they are real photos, the resolution is pretty good, considering their size.

Here's a 1.5" x 2.25" image blown up to 4" x 5". Click on the image to make it bigger.
