It looks like Technicolor when they fix it. The French ones still have a pointillism look. Though they both give that "transported back in time" feel.

Only recently fixed to paper. The original photographer would project the three separate images through the corresponding gel (RGB) and the colour image would be viewed on a screen

no worries I'm happy purpleoscar made this a separate thread from the regular photo thread too as I'm sure it interests people beyond those who regularly check the latter

Exactly, I never would have seen it in the photography thread. I kind of want a copy of some of these prints.

Interesting history here:

View of the Nilova Monastery. The Monastery of St. Nil' on Stolobnyi Island in Lake Seliger in Tver' Province, northwest of Moscow, illustrates the fate of church institutions during the course of Russian history. St. Nil (d. 1554) established a small monastic settlement on the island around 1528. In the early 1600s his disciples built what was to become one of the largest, wealthiest, monasteries in the Russian Empire. The monastery was closed by the Soviet regime in 1927, and the structure was used for various secular purposes, including a concentration camp and orphanage. In 1990 the property was returned to the Russian Orthodox Church and is now a functioning monastic community once more.

lol. I always thought it was just my morbid self who thought of those things when looking at old photographs. I was at a shoot in an old curling arena a few weeks back. They had pictures of all the old teams that used to curl there on the wall. I was literally looking at them and saying to a coworker "Hes dead by now...hes dead....those guys are all dead..."

Oh yeah I'm the same way when I watch a silent movie especially when there's a dog or cat. "Yep that dog is LONG since been dead."

I'm amazed, really, at both how clean everything seemed to be a century ago, coupled with how real everything looks when in a sharp colour photo...heh.
