Here’s a collection of some of fascinating vintage portraits of women of color taken during the Victorian Era.

According to Downtown LA Life, photos of “Women of Color” from this era are hard to come by, especially “family” photographs. A couple of these photos were taken when there was still slavery in the United States.

The photographs date from 1860 to 1901, and they show some of the gorgeous and diverse ways that people of color have existed throughout history.
