Living Colour

The Guardian is hosting a handful of pictures from an exhibition called The Dawn of Colour: Centenary of the Autochrome at the National Media Museum (which has a couple more photos). There's something lovely and yet quite eerie about them, as if they shouldn't really have any colour at all and the pictures are almost straining to be black & white.

In a similar vein here are some hundred year old colour photos of Russian Churches and a whole collection of different facets of Russia from the same time. Fascinating stuff.
