Amateur Erotic Photographs 1920s ~1950s

One of the areas of nude and erotic photography that continues to captivate my imagination is amateur "found" images, snapshot style photos or as photographica dealers refer to them (gulp), vernacular photographs. Call them what you like, the attraction is the discovery of previously unseen photographs often filled with a wonderful naive "erotisme", humor and of course, the rare instance of the creation of a minor masterpiece. Here in no particular order, from deep in the archives, are French and American photographs circa 1920s~1950s. A few photos at the end are recent arrivals and can be found in my eBay store.
