The first color photographs of the United States in 1888! (10 Pics)

Here is probably the first color photographs of the United States, created by the Detroit Photographic Company between 1888 and 1924! The photographs taken with a photolithographic process, 20 years before the invention of the autochrome, and coming from the Collection Mark Walter, allowed people to discover for the first time images of the “new world”. Taschen has just published a collection of these pictures entitled “An American Odyssey“, created by Marc Walter and Sabine Arqué. Some fascinating images!
