  1. The colorization is done very well in his set. The photos really bring a bygone era to life. It was fun to see some from New Hampshire and Vermont. My husband lived in Southington, Connecticut for a while when he was a kid.

  2. Dancing cheek to cheek…so much nicer! The shift between late 19th and early 20th centuries…stunning. Women shed all those volumes of clothing and became visible. It’s always good to look back and remember. Nice collection.

  3. That colourisation is really quite good. When I see the photos of small towns, they remind me of Back to the Future, and how accurate they were with their realisation of 1950s America, which doesn’t look so very different from these photos. Cheers, Jon.

      1. I was going to comment on the great colorization of these photos. But I’ll just agree with you here. The photos bring these people to life, even though the vast majority of them (if not all of them) are no longer with us today.

  4. The colorizations always does tricks on the mind, making the photos look more current. I find them evocative and I wonder what became of the people. The look of rural America was quite different.
