    The original was b&w but was sepia toned, hence I guess the feeling that the original was in colour? You will find a sepia tone action already in the Actions palette or Photoshop. You may want to play a little with Hue and Saturation after using the action to get it to look just right.

    If you want colour you are going to have to colour it by hand
