Are those really from the 1900's ?! they look incredible! The one at night is especially good for it's era- and i like the one of the man in the field and near the bottom- they have such amazing colours.

Indeed. If I recall correctly, they're grouped mostly around the 1920-1930's.
I love the safety pin in the field worker's shirt...it's the only shiny/clean thing in the entire image. The hazy green atmosphere of the train photo is magnificent as well.

yeah i agree- they're wonderful to look at. I don't know how to phrase this really- i know what i mean in my head but it's hard to explain- it makes them look more 'human' - for me anyway- i've got a picture of my relatives that is from anywhere between the end of the 19th century up to about 1920-30. It's in black and white and a very old photo- it's of my whole family at that time- they were all in their sunday best i suppose, and stood outside their farmstead/ house. But the faces on them are really gaunt and ghost like- they look like they're from several lifetimes ago as opposed to about 80 years. It does really creep me out some photo's in black and white because they're all long dead but their eyes still make me feel... well weird.
Like i said i don't know how to put it into words but the colour photo's make them seem more relatable to me- maybe because i was born after the advent of colour images and haven't had much exposure to black and white telly/photo's.
Anyway sorry for the ramble! i don't know if any of it made sense but thanks for sharing those pictures with us.
