Modern history speaks in color – by the painstaking efforts of numerous artists like Jordan Lloyd, Dana Keller, Sanna Dullaway and others. Most of these fascinating photographs are from the era of late 19th century to the early half of the 20th century.

So, if you are up for that fantastical trip down the history lane, be sure to check out the incredible colorized specimens – be it the great Albert Einstein loosening up by the sea, or the indomitable Theodore Roosevelt snuggling his infant, or the ever vivacious Audrey Hepburn striking a pose with panache by the oven.
