Colour Photos from WWI

1 03 2005

The general consensus is that the colour photograph was invented in 1903 by the Lumiere brothers.  Which leaves us with the only likely country taking pictures during WWI being the French.  Here are some of those pictures.  Rare colour glimpses into wartime Europe during the “Great War”.  Lots of moustaches!

Also cool – old photos from Russia, using 3 colour filter technology.
