Incredible! 18 Rare Colorized Photos From Major Events in History

Next >

In a world of selfies and duck faces, pouty lips and group photos, photography is simply part of our daily lives thanks to smart phones and modern technology. But, this wasn’t always the case. In fact, the oldest photograph ever recorded dates back to 1840 by Joseph Draper of New York City and was not, by any means, a duck-faced selfie. Surprisingly enough, it wasn’t until the 1950s with the advancement of technology that photography even became popular.

Think for a moment and consider the entire world of events that took place between the 1840s and 1950s: The Civil War, World War I and II, and the Great Depression, for example. These events are widely remembered but were seldom photographed, making the few and extremely rare black and white images of the era some of the most iconic photographs of all time.

But, what if these black and white photos were transformed into exquisitely colorful masterpieces? Take a look at these 18 iconic images that have been revitalized to resemble the true historic events as seen through the eyes of the storied photographers who captured their breathtaking beauty.
