Thanks for bringing this great link to us.

The quality of some of those photos are quite breathtaking. Some of the best examples I have seen to date.

To anyone unfamiliar with WWI colour photos...YES they had colour film in 1914-18 it was very very expensive to develop hence they are quite rare, they are not photoshopped or touched up...admittedly one or two are but on the whole they are REAL colour shots !

Thank you very much for these pictures. I looked at them with my jaw very firmly in the "dropped" position.

I suppose it sounds silly but for me colour photos from this period make it all seem more real and in a strange way more recent and less remote.

Somehow the colour brings the pictures to life and it no longer seems as though we are looking back at events from ninety years ago but instead it seems as though what we are looking at could have happened yesterday.

Thank you.

WOW nice pics. Must have taken a long time with 56k. I'm surprised that anybody is still using 56k, I've been using cable, which now runs at 3.5Mbs, for 4 years now.

Wow, thanks Blue! Seeing those pics in color was really neet. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif


And as far as cable internet is concerned not all of us can justify spending $50.00 a month U.S. for internet access. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I actually recognized a few pictures that were used in the excellent BF1942 mod BF1918. Sheesh, seeing those pics makes me want to start playing BF1918 right now!

yeah, i only pay $10 for my internet service http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
it suits my needs, gets very slow going sometimes, but its to be expected for $10.
ok, here's some more pictures. you will notice, all of these pictures were taken in france. france was the only country making use of color photography in the war.
