19th-Century Photoshopped Photos

19th-Century Photoshopped Photos

Before Photoshop, we had professional retouchers that could touch-up images by hand. But what about 'real' content changes? Here are some photos from over a century ago that seem to defy what was possible before the computer age. Can you guess how they were done?

Framework.com's original post points out that this kind of 'trick photography' was only $1.25 (about $32 today, adjusted for inflation)!
