Re: IC 1937 Boxcar color

The issue of whether any given color photograph may be an accurate mirror of color is a judgment that almost always has to be made contemporaneously. Even then, even though judged acceptable, truly accurate matching has to be rare. I strongly suspect that Tony Thompson's original SP color photos were left unused and untouched (or almost so) serendipitously in a cool black file drawer for the next 50 years- another rare circumstance in any event.
