World War I colour photos

Apparently, colour photography has been around since the beginning of the 20th century, and used extensively by the French during World War I.

The following site has many photos of the last 2 years of the Great War.

It’s an eerie experience watching these photos because you don’t expect colour photography during those times – in my own head, I was imagining grainy black and white photos and fast moving silent movies.

It definitely made WWI (ended in 1919 if I’m not mistaken) seemto have happened only several years ago.
