Ten WW2 Photos in Color
Contributor: C. Peter Chen
Color photography was introduced to the world prior to the 20th century, but even by the WW2-era, black-and-white photography was still the norm. Although color photos were not extremely rare, they came few and far in between. The result was that, since we typically expect WW2-era photos to be in shades of gray, the impact of those in color was far greater on the viewers. With nearly 7,000 photographs in the WW2DB collection at the time of this writing, I compiled a list of ten interesting color photographs from the WW2-era for your enjoyment. What do you think? Be sure to leave a comment and let me know.
