This wonderful collection of old photographs captures the history and culture of Paris, France during the late 1800's. These are restored photochrome prints that were colored using a unique process that gives these photos a 'hand-colored' feel to them. Nice views of old street scenes, towns and villages, and so much more.
Photochrom or Photochrome is a colorizing process combining photography and color lithography. Photochrome may also refer to the modern age of color postcards in America. Photochrom is used to create a color print from a black and white photo negative, using between four and fourteen lithograph stones, made from rocklike substances, to colorize the print with several different inks.
