The Library of Congress has some amazing archival images posted online.
This set is of color photos from the 1930s and 1940s.
These are amazing to browse through. As I look at them, it dawns on me that even though, intellectually, I know that the world was the same then as now, in my heart it’s almost as if I believe Calvin’s Dad and think that everything used to be black and white.
Actually, this recently struck me about some other photos — when a friend posted pictures from his trip to Dachau, it struck me that I wasn’t used to thinking of Concentration Camps in anything but black and white. It seems to be the same with old pictures. You mean the world was actually in color then?
