    • Brandon, I disagree completely. How can it “ruin” the picture? It is not like they physically destroy the original picture to colourise it – you can still find the original black and white pictures and look at them if you really must see them in black and white.

      However, the colourisation brings back some of the feel of the period that was impossible to capture at the time with the technology then available. There has been a huge improvement in colourisation technology and personally I cannot wait until technology can accurately colourise certain old black and white movies. In the meantime, it takes a lot of manual effort to do high quality colourisation and I have huge respect for those that do it well. Personally, I think several of the pictures in this particular series have been colourised really well.
