24 Iconic Colorized Photos That Let You Relive American History

Prior to 1970s, Color Photography was difficult to come by. Thanks to today’s technology we now have the chance to see how some iconic moments in history really looked like in color.

History in colorized perspective is always more thrilling, vivid and interesting. Colorizing monochrome historic photos is a new way to reimagine some iconic moments that have happened in the past with lively shades of color.
