Those really *are* remarkable. What a window into the past. Strange how color changes it completely. Time is peculiar.

Still remarkably vibrant. Wonderful. Shocking, as well, with the Mongolian prisoner-in-a-box. But mostly wonderful. Thanks Ze!

Yea, I like the Mongolian in a box. Maybe we should consider that for are worst criminals.

I've recently learned about early Russian color photography. Here's a link:

It's weird to see old scenes in a modern way.
