The New World

/ Wednesday, June 25 /

"These Photochrom and Photostint postcard images were produced by the Detroit Photographic Company between 1888 and 1924. Using a photolithographic process that predated the autochrome by nearly 20 years, they offered people the very first color photographs of The United States.... As luminous now as they were some 120 years ago, these rare and remarkable images that brought America to Americans now bring American's past to our present."
