Color Effect

My old friend Johnny shared this link on his Facebook: really old color photos.

I was struck by how humanizing the color was; these people felt closer than they ever had before.

Here's some black and white photos. Click them to see the color version. Clearly, I have no rights to these.

You're right on humanizing them. It went from "historical setting" to "people just like me". Makes me wish to have such photos for many times in the past to get a better idea of what a medieval town was like or a Roman plaza.
