Color changes the look of history.
Some really amazing photos there, thanks for sharing.
Thanks for posting.
That is really neat and if you follow the link shown at the bottom of the page you can see before and after versions.
Colorization indeed puts a different look to the pictures.
After watching the Victory at Sea Series during 1952-53 and many war movies in black and white, I recall it was a bit of a shock the first time I saw a war movie in color. I think it was “The Great Escape”. By then I had been in the USAF for 4 years and had been to Germany – so should have been adapted to seeing military scenes in color. I guess my mind had been trained to think WWII was fought in B&W.
Also after a long time of seeing baseball games televised in B&W I recall being almost overwhelmed by the color I saw when I went to a Cincinnati Reds game in 1959.
Memories.....and a few before my time.
Thanks these were so great.
There is something nostalgic about black and white photos, and I certainly remember when TV was B&W. My family got our first TV in 1953 and the first show I watched when I got home from school that day was a "Captain Video" episode and of course Howdy Doody. Does anyone else remember those old shows?
Anyway, the colorization definitely adds depth and reality to those old photos. Thanks for sharing.
Awesome stuff BobDee, and thanks to Evert for pointing out the before and after shots.
I was born in the late 50's so I do remember the B & W TV shows and movies. I do have to say though, I much prefer color, I can't watch a lot of the old B & W stuff anymore. In fact since the introduction of high definition I have a hard time watching stuff that isn't.
Fabulous photos. Thanks.
You can colorize your own B&W photos to color using Photo Shop. It's a long and complicated process, too complicated for my abiliities. It must have taken a very long time to colorize those 54 photos.
You can do a search on Google using keyword "youtube colorize B&W photos" for various links to see how its done.
For those interested here is one of the links.
Great pics - whoever colorized the older ones did a great job. Thanks for sharing!
