Foto atau gambar lama semangnya dirakam dalam imej warna hitam dan putih sahaja sebelum industri ini berkembang sehingga hari ini. Kalau buka album lama nenek atau ibu bapa anda yang lahir sebelum zaman merdeka pasti boleh lihat foto-foto hanya hitam dan putih.

Kadangkala rasa bosan seperti tiada tarikan kerana tidak sebarang warna kan? Sama juga seperti di dalam buku teks atau muzium, gambar-gambar tokoh atau kisah sejahtera rata-rata kekal hitam dan putih. Namun, pada zaman teknologi sekarang ini, gambar-gambar hitam putih boleh ditukarkan dalam imej berwarna. Teruja sekejap apabila melihat gambar-gambar lama tersebut kelihatan hidup.

1918. Oklahoma’s Fort Sill – the burial place of the Native American, Geronimo – housed static kite balloons, inflated with hydrogen such as this one. The balloons were deployed for the observation of artillery attacks, and were secured with guiding cables by groups of ground staff. Six troops were killed in the accident captured here on camera, at Henry Post Field at the Fort. The hydrogen in a balloon was ignited by a what is believed to have been a static electricity charge, created as the folds of the balloon fabric were rubbed together. Thirty more troops were injured.

Construction commenced in 1877, and Bartholdi brought in engineer Gustave Eiffel to help with the statue’s inner framework. In 1885, the completed statue was shipped to America, assembled and dedicated the following year.
