    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.)

    Very Nice! I have a small collection of autochromes. When I get a chance I will scan them and put them up. Special care has to be taken with them so I don't like to scan them. I prefer scanning lots of bulk paper items to make a bigger dent in my Archive.

    Love the autochromes. Isn't it amazing how they made them back then and they can't duplicate it easily now.
