(..this 'Cheers' bit the last two posters is doing is hilarious; I have no Photoshop software, can anybody post something from these, zoomed-in, a lot? I can't see anything in the photos.)

For the record, the first color photo, 1861, taken by James Maxwell:

'Ten of the World’s Photography Firsts!'

...edit for link correction.

It makes me feel ancient to realize there're posters who've never used a film camera and have never had a chance to discover their characteristics. These 'anomalies' are just dirt and scratches on the negatives, which all film images are prone to. In fact, a large part of 'traditional' darkroom work is retouching images to mask just these flaws.

These were shot on Kodachrome sheet film (the notch code on the right side is a giveaway), at a guess in the 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 format. That's in inches. Kodachrome was introduced in 1935 but was far from the first color system; Autochrome (1907) was probably the first practical means of outdoor color photography.
