Hand Tinted Images of Ireland from 1890


Photochrom is a method of imbuing black and white photographs with tinted color, by hand. It’s a time intensive process, yet it gives old photographs a remarkable effect, especially when they’re as old as these postcards from Ireland. Taken in 1890, the images show a simple, pastoral Ireland in a way that black and white photos just can’t. Check out Mashable’s huge archive of these fascinating emulsion images.
