Early Colour

Many film lovers don’t know motion picture colour film has been around since the beginning, through tinting – a popular method in the “silent” period where frames were individually painted by hand- or additive methods such as Autochrome and Dufaycolor. Above is an early example of the kodachrome process, which would not be marketed to the public until the 1930s. This is one of the more famous pictures snapped using kodachrome film from 1949 of Piccadilly Circus.
