    Ellis Island photographs

    As I have the book which show these photographs in their original colouring.

    Augustus F. Sherman: Ellis Island Portraits 1905-1920 Hardcover – June 15, 2005
    by Peter Mesenhöller (Author), Augustus F. Sherman

    These colourized images are interesting although I am on the fence about the appropriateness. I hope the illustrators have done their homework with regards to colours.

    I'd find them just as interesting without the colours added.

    Color does make them a bit more present (timeless) and accessible. I dont get lost in "look how old these are!" - rather I say "what strange characters"
