The 1870s marked the Victorian period in England. Even though it was a while back, photography did exist, but not in the way that you would expect it to be. These times were the early ages of photography. Capturing the world in black and white, these pictures hold an insane amount of historical value.
This article is about a collection of vintage pictures that are now colorized by an editor; Tom Marshall. Tom has come across these interesting pictures from the 19th century and had a real interest in seeing them in color. So, using his technical skills to turn these pictures into color, Tom managed to create a fresh perspective of the Victorian Era. You can scroll down to check out these pictures. The colors convert the perspective into a brand new one.
These pictures were captured by a Scottish photographer. Working himself on a monthly magazine of ‘Street Life in London’, John Thomson documented these moments on the busy streets of London.
The color in these pictures presents the details that aren’t found in the black/white pictures. The heavy toll on the daily lives of people in London is captured skilfully by Thompson. The colorizer/editor saw this opportunity to make these historical images even more valuable and created something brand new. Tom posted these colorized pictures on Bored Panda.
This set of colorized images caught the attention of a lot of people. It is amazing how a simple attribute of a picture can donate so much to its development. You can check more of this colorizer’s work using the links mentioned above. please share your thoughts in the comments section below as well.
Languages, music, and cinematography are some of the most interesting things to me. Love to explore more about the world and share it with all of you online!
