Sitting on the moon

Long before Photoshop, Instagram, photo booths or even the common ownership of a camera, you could get your photograph taken sitting on the moon.Used for special events, parties, carnivals, photograph took pictures of people sitting on a smiling paper moon as if lifted to the stars.

"An interesting fact about most examples of paper moon photographs is 
that we can see stars in the center of the moon’s crescent… something 
which in reality is blocked by the darkly shadowed sphere of the moon. 
It was clearly something not understood in the pre-space travel era of 
early 20th century America and still frequently overlooked today"

Beautiful souvenirs!!
