"Color WWII and early 1900s photography archives"



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.

The WWII ones have been mentioned before. I don't recall a mention of the Parisan ones. Thanks for posting this, though. I'm sure others will enjoy them too.

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.

Love the WWII ones - especially number 26. The description says they look skywards when in fact nobody is looking skywards!!! Great colours from the KC though...

I have never seen the Paris ones...
