I have not heard of this photographer, Leonard Misonne before but just found the thread linked below of some of his work in the latter part of the 19th and early part of the 20th century.
Really beautiful and evocative images. Given their dreamy and ethereal nature, it makes our search for more resolution in lenses and more megapixels in sensors seem rather silly when you instead have artistic vision and commitment. He certainly had an eye for the image.
Some more here.
EDIT: In fact this whole web site is pretty nice and replete with classic images. https://monovisions.com/
