Il secolo scorso… a colori

54 incredibili foto dal passato, tornano a nuova vita grazie ad alcuni appassionati che hanno deciso di ricolorarle.
In questo post di sono state raccolte una serie di foto colorate a mano o digitali che regalano una visione nuova dell’epoca a cui le immagini appartengono.

Beh, si magari un po’ artefatta ma che ha comunque il suo fascino.

Altre foto “colorate” sono disponibili sul sito e il profilo Facebook di Dana Keller, sul sito e profilo Facebook di Jordan J. Lloyd, sulla pagina di Facebook di Paul Edwards, e sul profilo Facebook di Patty Allison.
