Young woman, Luzon (Philippines), 1875

"At the Musee De L'Homme in Paris the picture is only identified as Sangley Filipina meaning Chinese Filipina. The photo was taken by Francisco Van Kamp who was a European that had a photo studio in Manila. The shine in her hair is from coconut oil and her half open fan means she is single."
Via the OldSchoolCool subreddit.


  1. Stunning beauty . Luck the man who married her

  2. Beyond gorgeous!!! One of the most beautiful women I've ever seen!!!! Wish she was my wife!!

  3. Timeless beauty looking into her very soul

  4. As I look at this photo, I say to myself... "Cerca 1865...my grandmother, who lived to be 100, was born in 1899- this girl, probably in her 20's, was born about 50 years before my grandmother. She is so gorgeous, but now, only sand. Life is short."
