28 Stunning Colorized Historical Photos

We are one second in front of our history and even if we now have things that are making our life more easier or lazier we should not forget that not even 100 years ago a global war broke us to pieces. We now have self driving cars but we should not forget that the humble horse helped us build and destroy empires. This is our history and unfortunately or in some cases fortunately, we can only imagine the most of it because photography was invented not too long ago.

Speaking about photography, I’m sure that you to have been curious how it was back then because sadly most photos are black and white. Actually the lack of colors makes a picture feel old and if you somehow colorize it, you will feel that you are making part of the period of time from that image. In this article you can see a stunning collection of 28 very old black and white which have been colorized.
