These historic color photos were originally shot in black and white and have had color added to them that brings them to life. While the world has always been in color, photos have not and it’s amazing to see the transformations.
The legendary picture of the sailor kissing the nurse has been everywhere, but now with colored added the image is much more vivid and attractive to the eye. The deeply mysterious photo of Alfred Hitchcock is even more creepy with color added because the shadows mix with the color to give it an eerie feeling.
History has left some very powerful pictures along the way and these iconic black and white photos are even more compelling now that they have become historic color photos.
