a few things you may have never seen

You mean the world actually existed in color back then?  That blows my whole schema!  These photo's are great!

It sorta gives folks a different persona when you see them in color photo's.  More humanizing, I think.  They certainly don't look so grim.  Of course it didn't help that no one ever smiled in group or family photo's.

If you do a search you can find color WWI photos from the Western Front. Some interesting sights, I don't know if they're real or not though.

those photos are amazing.  I love to see old pictures because it tells the story of the evolution of this great nation.

It is unreal to see those types of pictures on color. It almost seems staged.

Regarding the pictures...Don't think so...

Too clear and crisp, they look "enhanced" to me.

Regarding the subject matter...REALLY COOL!

Color transparencies (slides) were available by the late 1930s, though very expensive.  Transparencies are hold much more detail than any color print.  As long as the transparencies were kept intact,resulting images made from them should be OK.

About "enhancement"....it is a given that any digital scans would be color corrected and probably sharpened (which actually involves very selective blurring) to demosaic the raw digital scans.  The same process would be applied to traditional analog prints made from transparencies.  I wouldn't know if these are legit, but it is plausible.

At any rate,they are a cool set of images.  Seems like way too much work to artificially colorize them,but who knows - ten minutes on YouTube, and you'll see some have wayyyyy too much free time,LOL.
