    simply marvelous, I could see people trying to emulate the palettes, those reds...!
    thank you, so much, for sharing these.

    I enjoyed them. Especially as I did not know most of them.

    (As a side note: technically speaking not every photograph captured by an editor as "Autochrome" necessarily is such, but that should not lessen the pleasure of looking into a colourful past.)
