I have no idea how real any of these WWII photos are because I haven't had a chance to research the archive or its owners. Nonetheless, the photos (whatever their origin) are remarkable.
The same goes for these fascinating turn-of-the-20th-century photos of Paris. I think the photo of the sidewalk flower seller is astonishing.
What have I missed? Has the existence of all these photo archives and technologies been common knowledge among Nikonians? I've been aware for some time of early color photography, and I've certainly seen early color plates occasionally over the years, but I've never seen such extensive archives.

Yes, the WWII collection has been posted here before. The French ones are new to me. Nevertheless they are fantastic, thanks for posting them again, it had been a while since I saw them. This time I made bookmarks.
