Colorized History

11 October 2013   //     7 comments   //   color, design, photography, vintage

I just discovered this treasure trove of colorized photos from the past, and I have spent the better part of today looking at the photos there. Many (most?) of them were done by two artists: Mads Madsen, from Denmark, and  British artist Jordan Lloyd.

Here are a few to whet your appetite. But do yourself a favor and check them all out.

  1. I just lost a few hours scouring through those Reddit posts, but on the plus side, my Pinterest boards look a whole lot more colorful.

    Undeniably consider that that you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be
    on the internet the simplest thing to have in mind of. I
    say to you, I definitely get annoyed whilst other folks consider concerns
    that they plainly do not recognise about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest as neatly as defined out the
    entire thing without having side-effects , other people can take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
