I agree, though allow me to bring up this point... As a man in my 20's, the footage before the color age always seemed distant, almost fake because I wasn't around to see the b/w era, so to see it in color really takes you to it.

I understand, however IMO the color takes away some of the "grittiness" and desperation of many of the images

Yep. I have older parents for my age, and I always loved going through their old pictures of their parents and grands. I remember asking one time how come no one ever smiled in the pictures and dad slapped me with some reality by sayin "Wasn't much to smile about".

Really good website. I spent about an hour in there today. BTW the most impressive thing was how they cleaned up some of the oldest pics so that they were crystal clear.

Check out Reddit /r/ColorizedHistory for a LOT more photos.

These are really neat. Some of them are done so well that you feel as though you are seeing a shot from a movie scene made in the last few years.

For some reason I thought I may find some kind of flaw with the whole undertaking. Some betrayal of the original 'greatness' of the photos themselves but I was completely wrong. That was awesome. It somehow allows a closer connection. Made them more real. Well done indeed.

And what terrific photos...wow.

And after all these years I now get the whole Liz Taylor thing...there is some mischief in those blue eyes...the good kind.
