So many fantastic moments from modern history have been captured on celluloid by a photographer. But up until the sixties, a lot of the photographs that we can enjoy and learn from were only caught in black and white. Obviously, since then color technology has allowed us to take snaps of the world in multicolor. But recent developments in photography mean that old black and white shots can be processed and have the color put into them. And perfectly too. Colorized photographs can really help give us a new insight into things past. Check it out…
