1. How cool.

I love seeing historical pictures colorized. Makes them so much more true to life.

I say this as someone who did not have a color TV until I was about 10 in 1973!

On the same hand, I like looking at modern day photos in black and white.

Loved the music, too!

thanks for sharing this!

I thought these were exceptionally well colorized, since I normally don't like that technique.

That was a fantastic chronology, well worth the few minutes. Atlanta 1864, mother & children in Tennessee, and Hiroshima stand out in particular, but a fascinating collection all the way.

the time my parents were born. I noticed how old the faces of those poor children were and that 15-year old German youth crying. Powerful stuff and the music and color just added so much to it. Beautiful..

Colorizing these photos -- or any very old photos -- really brings them alive, puts us much closer to the people in them.

Imagine if we had actual photos of even earlier people and events.

Every time a PukeBagger rants something "Nazi"...remember these images...especially that stare-down photo.

27. Why did they add color to them?

There was no color photography back then. Sometimes prints were hand-tinted.

To me, to add color is to violate the photographer's intent. He had no hand in it. Most of these are very famous photos.

30. My guess is to make them seem more life-like to us.

I think it was done very carefully. The colorization is not garish.

How can you violate the photographer's intent when there was no color photography? Maybe they would have preferred color. I know that Ansel Adams took some of his pictures in color, and really enjoyed doing it. But it was expensive in his day.

70. I remember seeing a colorized version of the film [i]The Maltese Falcon[/i]

It was a completely different movie. For some reason, many of the colors came out as pastels. Whatever color Sam Spade's world was, it was not pastel.

I guess hoping I see a picture captioned Jefferson Maner as we don't have any pictures of him from that time. later photos yes but not when he was in the union army. We do have his discharge papers though. they were passed down to our Dad because he was the youngest member of the family.

A doffer is someone who clears full bobbins, pins or spindles holding spun fiber such as cotton or wool from a spinning frame and replaces them with empty ones.

This was a job for young boys in the cotton mills, because they had speed, strength wasn't an essential.

Some web sites create fancy displays that just don't work on mobile devices, seems like they must not even test for mobile compatability.

67. For those wondering about "Doffer Boys"

They were employed to take full spindles from a spinning frame and replace them with empty ones.

74. FWIW, the Nazis are standing in Munich,

at the Feldherrenhalle. In November 1923 Hitler had tried to take over the country in 1923 starting with a riot in Munich at that place. This putsch failed, some Nazis were killed, and Hitler was convicted to prison. When he finally won the Nazis had a commemoration there at every 9th of November (I think the combination of 9 and 11 are the real numbers of misfortune, who cares about 13?).
They had also a guard of honour there 24/7 and every citizen who was walking by had to do the Hitlergruß - all the way long. So everybody avoided the place and went through a tiny alleyway behind the Feldherrenhalle. They called it Drückebergergässchen, which means skulker street.

The Feldherrenhalle was built in 1844 imitating the Loggia Dei Lanzi in Florence, Italy.

from Munich!
