asylum-artHistoric Black and White Pictures Restored in Color 

The history of photography is only about two hundred years old and the period when it was possible to take coloured pictures is a lot shorter than that. However, colour makes us perceive the image we view as more realistic. Fortunately, there are communities of colourizing black and white photography enthusiasts, such as  r/ColorizedHistory , that bring us emotionally closer to our roots with their work.
