Color photos from the 1900's

Yep, they did exist for those that didn't realize

I had heard of this photographer a while back, and this website shows some of his restored works.

Incredible photos.

Wow. These would be good pictures if taken with modern equipment, when you consider the equipment they were taken with, they are outstanding. Thanks for the link.

The clarity of the images is what really impressed me. I was astounded at how much detail he managed on the negatives.

Thanks for the link. I've heard of this before, but it's the first time I saw that site. Very interesting, to say the least!

Actually high-quality images of the original plates are available at the Library of Congress website.

I wrote up some tutorials a few months ago on how to composite these.

Feedback on improving the process would be awesome.

Apparently there's not much interest.

What I find most interesting about this, is it clearly demonstrates that all colors can be produced from these three colors. That's essentially how I do my colorizations.
