    These are so great! I like the town photo with the motorcycles — you can tell how different color photography worked back then.

      Proudkin-Gorsky developed a photographic machine that could shoot the same scene 3 times, each one the light passed a filter (red, green, and blue) and the picture developed in three glasses. The resulting images could be projected using backlights that passes through the same colored filters. When the three images overlap perfectly what you see is a natural color photo. Preety amazing for the time.
