The people and events we read about in history sometimes seem so far away. We know the places where people lived and the times when things happened, but they're abstract. It's hard for us to truly see history as it was. Photos from these eras help visualize the past, but can seem removed from our everyday experience. However, with an added dash of color, a black-and-white scene springs to life and we can actually relate to the past.
These are some of the cool colorized photos we saw in 2021.
