I came across these pictures only the other day. I’d seen some like this in passing before but only as singles. I was so taken by some of them that I felt the need to have to share them. It poses the question though, should these pictures be remastered in such a way or should they be left as they were in a monochrome state?

    Perhaps strangely the three that looked the best to me were Einstein, British Troops and the car crash. In colour they seemed both more fascinating and more modern.
