WWI in color. Part 1
Here is the first part of our collection of photos of WWI. Unlike the vast majority of pictures of those times, these pictures were colorized, which gives us a more complete impression and facilitates the perception of those already distant, times. To be continued… Here is part 2 already. All the photos are taken from here.
