A few days ago we discussed colors in a Jack Delano freight-yard photo, as they might be applied to STMFC modelling. This group of photos also has some Delano pictures of non-railroad subjects; what do y'all think of the colors in those? (I wish I could ask my late dad, who remembered that time.)
Reminds me of the theory that before 1935 or so, the world actually was NOT in color, but in B&W. That's what all the evidence shows, anyway.
