Jules Seeberger, 1872-1932, along with brothers Louis Seeberger (1874-1946) and Henri Seeberger (1876-1956) founded Les Frères Seeberger (The Seeberger Brothers) photo agency in Paris in 1905.  Documentary photographers, their work often appeared as postcards from this time.  A volume published in 2007 titled Elegance: The Seeberger Brothers and the Birth of Fashion Photography, is a collection of their work showing the fashionable and well-to-do in French society from the early part of the 20th century.
