World War One in colour

It's a week late, perhaps, for some topical teaching but astounding nevertheless. Der Spiegel has published several collections of old colour photos, but this set of WW1 trench warfare in colour just reminds us that the world wasn't played out in black and white before the 50s.

Thanks for this Ewan! Will use with my History students and let you know what they think.

Prompted a memory of my daughter when she about 8 watching an old silent black and white Keystone Cops film and asking thoughtfully - So how long have human beings been walking smoothly?

Excellent Ewan, eery haunting quality to these photos. Just stumbled your post.

Thanks again.
