Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, according to the well-known saying. Yet it is only in the present day that our eyes need to make some effort to find beauty in so many faces. When it comes to women of the past, their appearance was unquestionably pure. One can be sure — this beauty is as real as it gets.
We at Bright Side are devoted fans of the natural look — and want you to see this gallery of women from the era of no Botox, no plastic surgery, and no eye patches.

The Luzon people have no relationship to any native Americans whatsoever. The picture was made I believe in 1875. The Spaniards kept The Philippines as a colony then. Indigenous Americans descent from ancient Beringians. They have nothing in common whith the people from the Philippines. Except they came from Asia! Guess she's part Spanish and part Philippino. And yes, the most beautiful of them all in my opinion!
I have seen pictures from woman in the last century that are more beautiful than every woman you showed in this whole list. Not to mention the most beautiful woman of the last century will never be seen
It is mostly all in their eyes I think....oh, and the hair too...and the skin, yeah, the skin also lol. I think Rita Martin is a stunner but they all are in different ways as are all women. It is a lovely collection of pictures though and it is always interesting to take a peek back in time just to look at how glamourous some of these women were. I love their clothes and jewellery as much as their faces. Thanks for putting this together so well!
It goes to show before or Now why Philippines wins the miss universe..
The image of that Luzon woman even though it was taken so so.. long time ago without .any beauty apps back then...
Still... the Filipina woman (Philippines) always lights up her beauty. The image is like a modern day photo ... just perfect beauty.
That's real beauty.
The other photos shown are So "Questionable " :)
P.s. dude just because it's an old images u dont need to add scary background..
Sometimes u have
Think outside the box .
I couldn't choose: they are beautiful in different ways. Just wonderimg, where is Gladys Cooper? Known for playing elderly ladies in H'wood, but she was a stunning beauty in her youth on the Edwardian stage. Frequently featured on postcards:
Actually photos were retouched by artists who changed the skin tone, added shades, colorized or intensified the eyes and made them look more matted and flawless. While the photos in this gallery are possibly not retouched in terms of shape of the face, or body.....you better believe that a lot of other signs and traits were altered. Example the skin of these ladies is lightened (since lighter skin was the elite status and defined a richer woman from a poor one, who worked outside). First photoshop in a sense done by master artists. :-)
Unsubscribing this all of these beauties and not one woman of color you are perpetuating the myth of the
Most beautiful women of the last century were white or light skinned people when most females on this list look homely and clothes make them more attractive - get over yourselves the world is made majority of people of color and should be represented
Maude Adams was my favorite. The movie Somewhere in Time with Jane Seymour as the character Elise McKenna, *based on Maude Adams, and Christopher Reeve. I was intrigued by the movie and did a little research about it.
You can still see Mary Pickford, it's been reported by many people including the Los Angels County Sheriff's Office her spirit still romes the grounds around the Hollywood sign were she leaped to her death in a suicide.
F or 25 years we have provided deluxe wilderness outpost fishing trips from our Armstrong location into beautiful Wabakimi Provincial Park and surrounding lakes.
Yes, we take you where the fishing is extraordinary , but there is more than fishing. Yearly family gatherings sharing a wilderness experience in comfort. Father - son (or daughter) bonding trips or Husband and wife celebrating a second honeymoon with the added spectacular outpost fishing or `the buddy trips where the tall tales get taller.
Its a big time stress reliever! . how do you think about anything else when you are fighting a fish?
Greg and I had a great week. we caught over 1000 walleye. There were well over 200 in the slot size (>18"). This is the most large walleye that have ever been caught on a trip to whiteclay for me. The slot size protection is working. It seems that each trip has more large fish being caught. Our largest northern was 43". It was caught on a jig while walleye fishing.
Greg and I sent see what you missed letters to about a dozen folks. Hope that translates into a large group for next June. . Fran and I are looking forward to the August fishing trip .

Received your card. Congratulations on 25 Years! We speak often about the great times we had at Ogoki! A Tribute to you both!
Best Regards, Rich Craddock.
What a nice surprise to find your post card in my mail yesterday. Twenty-five years is a long time to do anything; much less a business like yours with all the uncertainties of weather, exchange-rates, two-country economies, etc. There is a reason why your business has survived and (hopefully) thrived. you do the wilderness fishing experience better than anyone in the outdoor sport vacation business.
Dear Judy and Paul,
Congratulations on 25 years. I have many fond memories of my time with Jack at Ogoki. Hope all is well with you.
. . . Nicole will take you on a guided tour!
This website will take you every step of the way for a worry free fishing vacation!
Let us introduce ourselves; Judy & Paul Boucher and family. Weve been doing this for 25 years and have learned a thing or two on how to take the worry out of the wilderness experience. Our staff will help you with anything you may not understand or solve any mechanical glitch right away. In short: we treat you like family!
Just a note to let you know our recent fishing junket to your Mojikit South Outpost.
Ive been coming to Armstrong area since 1972 and have probably flown in with 6-7 different outfitters over the years to numerous outposts. Your Mojikit South camp is clearly the nicest camp I have been to. The cabin is beautiful and roomy. Great kitchen and dining area. Beautiful screened in deck and outside porch overlooking the channel. Large chest freezer and a frig that actually keeps things cold. Screened in fishing cleaning house with running water. Bedrooms that are roomy. Vaulted ceiling the the cabin is a plus. The cabin is centrally located to both the lake and the Ogoki Reservoir.
The boats are the best that Ive ever experienced at an outpost. The inside bottoms consist of flat carpeted panels. easy to get in and out of. 1st time Ive fished an outpost with "dry" feet. The boats had comfortable swivel seats and 15 & 20 hp 4-stroke engines that worked great.
We will definitely be back. Everything about Ogoki Frontier was quality. My two grandchildren had the time of their lives, as did the other 2 members of our party. Thanks for the memories.
