Lincoln In Living Color

I do a lot of picture research. Historical photos are always awash in black and white, so I loved seeing this colorized portrait of Abraham Lincoln.  The White House Museum has a cool blog.  A must for history buffs.


  1. "There is the animal himself!" -- Lincoln, regarding a plaster cast of his face, 1860.

  2. That is one of the best colorizations I have seen. How "real" it looks. I am always shocked to see the ravages of this noble man's face during his presidency. He clearly carried the heavy burdens of his country and life with him. RD

  3. Amazing -this really looks like a real color photograph taken recently!
