Awesome Collection Of Colorized Photos From The Past That Will Leave You Awestruck, Especially #19

When we think of historical pictures, we always envision them in black and white. This is because up until the 1970s, photos were only produced in monochrome.
Unlike today, edited and played with in various ways, thanks to technology. With many photography tools readily available, a number of skilled individuals decided to bring life, by adding color, to a wide collection of historical photos which we've only seen in black and white - until now.
This series of high-quality colorized photos are comprehensively filed in Reddit's Colorized History community.
These 65 below are among their most powerful and stunning colorized photographs. Enjoy!
