Found These Yesterday

Found these yesterday. Don't know this site at all-- seems to just be lists of things. But these pictures really moved me. They seemed to represent more of the whole world than we usually see.

Let me now what you all think.

Raises glass-- to absent friends....

There's a five-part BBC documentary The Edwardians in Colour that features early colour photographs from the Albert Kahn museum. One episode focuses on WWI photographs, but there's also photos taken around 1900 in remote areas around the world, including China and North Africa, as well as all across Europe.

I found some snippets on YT:

They make it all seem very immediate. It happened to real, ordinary people, and it's amazing that so many survived with their sanity.
