REMARKABLE WHEN YOU CONSIDER THAT COLOR FILM WAS NOT COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE UNTIL THE LATE 1930’S
Quite amazing! No computer, no Picaso, no Photo Shop, no Print Shop, no color film. Interesting photos taken by Russian photographer in late 1800’s and early 1900’s taken in several countries in color.

He used a three plate camera with black and white film, each film exposed through either a red, green or blue filter, then he printed each film on a single piece of special color paper through the complementary filters of cyan, magenta and yellow, creating a color image on the paper. A VERY tedious process that produces a color image that will last centuries and the B&W negatives also will last that long for reprinting.
