    That's old, like last year old. I want new ones. Too bad we don't have some time machine. :(



    I thought that the uploader of them hinted that there are more to be uploaded or something? I dunno.

    KS: This is an amazing group of pictures...from 101 years ago! This is Russia in the era of the Czars...before the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution creating the Soviet Union...

    The technology to take color photographs DOES go that far back...and it surprises me that it did not become popular then...was it the expense or lack of developing technology?

    It is still hard to believe that these pictures are that old...they are THAT good! LI MIKE

    I like one comment left on that site:

    "I'm absolutely amazed! So, people 100 years ago weren't silly, quickly walking, black-and-white, mute creatures, they were as we are! These photographs show that the people and the world don't change.. Thanks God!"

    Indeed...

    It's easier to imagine life in those times with colour photos. The imagery seems less distant and more relatable, even though so much has changed since then.
