Nice photos. Seeing color photography from the early 1940s is something. In a part of our brains, we don’t think of the world of the early 1940s, the period of the war, as having existed in color. We think it existed in black and white. But, as these photos show us, somewhat to our surprise, it was a color world, just like ours.
