    Some great quality pics without the colourisation.
    "Stunning colourised portraits have emerged showing the lethal Russian female snipers of World War Two - including one dubbed Lady Death after picking off 309 Nazis.
    Pictures of the fighters were brought to life by translator Olga Shirnina, from Moscow, Russia, and show women posing with their sniper rifles.
    They feature portraits of Lyudmila Pavlichenko, considered the most successful female sniper in history. In one image Pavlichenko, dubbed Lady Death after taking out more than 300 Nazis, stands proudly with her weapon.
    In another portrait she is pictured wearing full uniform beneath a framed picture of Soviet dictator, Joseph Stalin.
    Separate images show Roza Shanina, responsible for 59-confirmed kills, while one shot shows a row of Soviet women ready to fight Nazi Germany. "

    They are restored in a a great realistic way. You'd almost think they are nowadays persons.

    If she were alive she'd be about 110 now. Would that still work ?
