You’ll Look At History Differently When You See These 34 Iconic Photos in Color

It looks so real, don’t it?

Have you ever been sitting in a high school, or even college, history class wondering why you just can’t seem to retain any information? Your instructor probably said something like “this’ll be on the next exam” hoping that you’d pay closer attention to no avail. Well, there’s a theory that history’s hard to put into content (and store in your memory) when it’s difficult to visualize, and one can make an argument that looking at black-and-white photographs sure doesn’t help. Well, since technology can oftentimes be a hell of a resource, quite a few bored folks on the internet have taken to giving new life to some iconic photos that originally didn’t have the luxury of being captured in color.
