25 Unseen Colored Photos Of Russian People From 1900-1965

Published 3 years ago

It’s hard to argue that Russia is one of the most distinct countries in the world and a lot of it has to do with its history. Now we have a unique chance to see a glimpse of it in a fresh new way with colorized vintage photos from the Motherland.

Thankfully Russian Flickr user klimbims kept himself busy with colorizing vintage photos, some of which date back more than a hundred years back. Diversity and a whole different perspective on life can be seen in these moments immortalized in time.

If you like these photos, be sure to also check out remastered photos of The Last Samurai of Japan.
