    Amazing early 1900 color photographs

    Beautiful color photographs of Paris from at least 20 years before Kodachrome was invented. Hope the link works because these are worth a look.

    Great pictures!

    It would be interesting to see the same pictures today to see what has changed.

    +1. Let's take up a collection. I volunteer to make the trip and promise a good effort, although the contributors might be wise to select someone like Steve Farson who started the wonderful "Then and Now" Thread.

    This is pretty neat but centers around WWII and now.

    Keep in mind these have "war photos" in them so there may be pictures of dead soldiers in them.
