Images from the past…

Autochrome images from around the world from the start of the 20th Century.

My favourite?

No, it doesn’t look anything like that any more.

How good would it be if some of the art we have planned for WotW appeared in autochrome (ignoring somewhat that it wasn’t invented until 1907).

    Autochrome was first patented in 1903 (it wasn’t marketed until 1907), according to Wikipedia.

    Yes, it’s a fantastic image. A very talented person might be able to do something with that image and a Martian tripod 🙂
