25 Mind-Blowing Colorized Photos
Colorized photos are breathtaking. Prior to 1970s, color photography was rare. And most of history before that is remembered in black and white, which has made that world seem distant. Beginning in the 1960s, Kodak’s Kodachrome and other film brands began to establish a presence in the market, but they were still much more expensive than standard B/W film. By the 1970s, prices decreased enough to make color photography accessible for everyone. Finally, by the 1980s, B/W film was no longer the dominant medium for daily snapshots. Color became the norm. However, new technology and artistic skill has brought color to that gloomy world of the past.
Here is a selection of the oldest living movie- and TV-stars that few realize are still alive. There are more actors and actresses than can be included in future editions.
