History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days. ~Winston Churchill

What fun pictures! I really like the first one taken in Montreal which was colorized. It makes it appear more recent even though it was taken over one hundred years ago.

Recently I saw some old baseball pictures online that were colorized to the accurate colors of the players uniforms. It was neat to see the players the way they would have looked on game day.

I know, the added colour really gives a different perspective, doesn't it? I can imagine the baseball pictures were good. I'd love to see some of the stripey socks from this post in colour, hehe!
