    Amazing what they can do with photo's today. Too see things in clear color from well over a hundred years ago is crazy. Years listed under photos.

    Pretty fucking cool.

    The WW2 in Color series gave me a whole new appreciation for what all them motherfuckers went through. It's amazing how black and white footage seemed (to me at least) so unrelatable.

    I love that series too! You should check out The World At War, 70s BBC series which has amazing color footage for it's time and interviews of SS Totenkopf soldiers to Prince Bernhard of The Netherlands!

    : Lincoln Assassination co-conspirator. This one blows me away. 150 years ago. Look at that face:

    Nice. They seem too detailed for the lenses and film they had, so I take it they've been enhanced. Pretty awesome though.

    Good stuff, LT. Some of the pics I've seen before. Some I haven't. But it's all worthwhile. Thanks for posting.
