Prior to the 1970s, color photography was hard to come by. These photos below have been “colorized” to help us visualize what the world that we only know as black and white looked like. It’s quite jaw-dropping to see the likes of Abraham Lincoln and Albert Einstein in living color. The world has always been a marvelous place, but these photos make it all the more incredible.

Interestingly, we now have here the actual, real representation of how these images looked when photographed. And at times, one looks at b & w and the impression is those events was drab, dull, boring and lacked feelings. In reality? These photos are more in line with what I remember living through say...the Kennedy years.
Color brings real presence and emotion to the original b &w's, even if its colorized with not the exact-true original colors of the events themselves. Thanks so much for these!!!!!
