History is not always black and white...

Ever wonder what life looked like a hundred years ago? It sometimes strikes me as odd that the world was as colorful then as it is now with the abundance of grainy black and white documentation of life in the past. Sure, we lived in color then as we do now but with the constant black and white historical photographs we're used to these days it's sometimes difficult to think otherwise.Until this. These are historical photographs taken nearly 100 years ago with a series of cameras capturing different colors. Put the images together and you get full color photographs of a long time ago. I find it amazing that these photographs look as if they could have been taken today and yet they were taken from a time in which all I've ever seen or thought possible was black and white. Also of related interest are the World War II color photographs...

Times have changed and so too has the design of this site. Journey back in time with me for some redesign fun!

I have a healthy fascination with the phenomenon of events in relation to the musical Assassins.

I'm really not sure of the appeal of Mark Bakalor's site, because frankly I suspect there is none, but hell, I check it at least thrice daily, and you should too!
