    I've seen many good 'then and now' photos, John and yours are exceptional. A pleasure to view.

    Now with Street View, I wonder how many more we can come up with?

    Now, if we could just find a good photo archive....

    Jeff, the colorization adds to the photos, especially the ones where the colors are somewhat muted. Thanks.

    Skipper and L;
    Thanks! The war was not fought in B&W and I do think that colorization MUST happen-if only to "set the record straight."

    PS. I have been fiddling with this hobby for a long time now and have developed my own techniques.

    You, of course, are right. The war was certainly fought in color, a fact we frequently forget since most of the photos are black-and-white. That last picture is excellent.

    Nice job on the colorization, Jeff. The last one in your first post almost looks like a photo of re-enactors, and I mean that as a compliment. :)

    I agree with TD, picture #4 in post 51 jumped out when I saw it. The Soldier closest to the camera looks like he is all of 15 or 16 years old. I don't think you would be able to see that without the colorizing.
