Would you believe that this photograph was taken more than a century ago?

This young woman, who looks like someone who might accidentally spill PBR on your shoes at an Avett Brothers concert, was probably born around 1899 or 1900.

These photographs were taken on the beach at Lulworth Cove, England in 1913, a year before World War I shattered the placidity of Europe.

The young woman's name is Christina O'Gorman. The photos were taken by her father, Mervyn O'Gorman, a 42-year-old British engineer who was experimenting with an early form of color photography called Autochrome Lumière, which used potato starch on a glass plate as a color filter.
