Valiente: What took a while was stable, reliable colour that didn't demand multiple exposures, arcane filters and general trickery to achieve, along with mad scientist levels of darkroom chemistry.


Kodachrome might have lasted a few more years at least, if it didn't require such an insanely complicated process. For a long time, nobody but Kodak did K-series processing, and when Kodak was forced out of the processing business (due to antitrust concerns), few labs were willing to pick it up.

/shot a fair bit of Kodachrome 64 before going digital

Le Grand Inquisitor: Those pictures are beautiful. Also they are an excellent reminder that back in the day if was ok to be proud of your country. Look at all that pomp and circumstance. Flags draped over buildings. Monuments adorned in banners heralding the glory of your people. You just don't find that kind of national pride these days, especialy from the French...shame


Because strong nationalism worked out so well for Europeans.

Huggermugger: I wonder how much different color photographs of early 1800s Paris would be. Other than the lack of the Eiffel Tower, I imagine not a whole lot of difference in the buildings.


Ever hear of a guy called Baron Hausmann?

cgraves67: How can you keep the boys down on the farm once they've seen color pictures of Paris?


My grandmother went from a small farm in South Dakota to study in Paris at exactly this time (1914).
The then went back to live in Topeka Kansas.

I don't understand it either.

Grand_Moff_Joseph: markie_farkie: Grand_Moff_Joseph: I'm probably dead wrong here, but I didn't think that color film showed up until the late 1940s.

Single-emulsion color film, yes..

There were a variety of additive and subtractive methods used, going back to the 1890s, to capture color images.

ohhh....ok.  I learned something new today.  :D


/Thanks Fark!  XD

That's because they were going to war with Germany. Or were about to. So nationalism was at an all-time high. The major nations of Europe were gearing up for the war to end all wars -- all they needed was a powderkeg event.

Four years and 8 million bullet-riddled bodies later, nothing was accomplished.

Sometimes national pride can be a dangerous thing.

Early 1800s? Substantially different. Except in the Latin Quarter, that's about what it looked like even then. But the rest of the city is substantially different. Dramatically.

Why doesn't America ever do military parades like these? We do air shows, but you never see columns of ground forces parading around in the states. We could surely put on a show to put all others to shame if we wanted to... Hell, it could last for several days straight, clear to the horizon.... We are always accused of having too much patriotism, yet we don't do this stuff.

Yes, because it was that nationalist exact mentality that led to to millions of European kids dying in trenches for the next two generations. Europe kind of gets that now.
