On the other hand, looking at the Library of Congress' Photochromes I've come to the conclusion that those are "colorized" black&white images.
I've gotten most of the color images the French took in WWI and built a site - in my spare time - with the images. Got linked from Wikipedia, somehow, and the hits went through the roof.

Should you decide to look, clicking on one or two of the ads to help pay for bandwidth would be greatly appreciated!
