Vintage Monday: Color

Black and white photographs hold up impressively well over time. Color not so much. They tend to fade and shift colors, especially the ones from the early days of this process. The chemicals making them possible weren't as stable as the silver of BW photos.

Above is a picture probably from the fifties or sixties. Original on the left, and Photoshop manipulated version on the right--less muddy, but still far from perfect.
