This is how the World looked 120 years ago.
Early photographs would have remained grainy and sepia tinted had it not been for the outstanding work of Auguste and Louis Lumière who developed a technique they called Autochrome Lumière. The brothers revolutionized and dominated the world of colour photography until Kodak took things to a whole new level with the invention of Kodachrome film in 1935.
