Historical photos were digitally colored, and the results are beautiful

History doesn’t have to be just black-and-white.

Dynamichrome is a project dedicated to digitally reconstructing historical photos in color, offering a brighter glimpse into the past. 

One photo even shows the Eiffel Tower in its original reddish-brown color. It’s been painted multiple times since then.

Dynamichrome’s director, Jordan Lloyd, teamed up with Retronaut website founder Wolfgang Wild to create a book featuring 130 of these photographs. “The Paper Time Machine” will be released in October 2017. 

Check out some of the reconstructed historical photos below.
