1910s America In Color

We often perceive the past in black and white - after all, the vast majority of photographs from the 1910s through into the 1930s and 40s are monochrome. Yet a color photography process called the Autochrome Lumière was patented in 1903. It remained the foremost color process until the second half of the 1930s.

The pictures you are about to see are mostly dated about 1915-18 with some earlier and a few from the 1920s.
