Images of people is always Editorial without model release ?

Danielc1998
I wonder if any editor could tell me if a collage made of old postcards (100 years old or more) showing people performing different activities is considered Editorial or I can submit such an image as RF ? Is there any case were images of people could be considered RF without model release ?
Thanks.

Such images can only be submitted as Editorial.

Thanks Nikitu,
Is there any case were images of people could be considered RF without model release ? The case I referred, it is impossible to get any model release or even any authorization from the photographers or editors who made them, as they do not exist any more. And I guess any commercial right to reproduce the postcards themselves expired long time ago.

No, for RF image you need a model release signed by descendants of the people in the images as well as a property release from the legal heir of the pictures.
