    Colorized Historical Pictures

    There are many famous pictures over the last few centuries that were taken in grayscale. The more usual term is black-and-white, which is a misnomer, since such pictures include shades of gray. Some people have colorized them, painting colors on them to show some idea of what the originals looked like. So they are artist's conceptions to some degree, though making them often required a lot of research into what were the likely colors in the pictures.

    Some of the images here are repeated in several of the pages, and I've included all these pages because it was hard for me to decide which to select. I've even found some different colorizations of the same picture, like Marina Amaral and the Dynamichrome team doing different colorizations of the famous D-Day landing picture.

    Pictures of pre-revolution Russia are not colorized, they are actually color pictures.
    Take that, You!
