Thought to be the oldest colour footage in the world. The inventor/photographer died at 29, before he'd worked out how to project it, so it was never seen until now.

I have to say, the colors are a bit over the place, but its better than I expected. That looks really good for a film that was shot over 100 years ago. The stills of the photographer were still monochrome.

Thanks, SS! Fascinating. There's something about archival footage.
Capturing a time and place so long ago and in this case....in colour!

Very interesting news. I always love to look at old-time pictures especially the color ones.
But color video from 1902 < that is really something! Thank you for sharing this ShadySue!

Love it. Good choice of subjects, the parrot especially.

I have some 16mm sitting in a box (not quite as old of course, 40s and 50s) And I have no idea what's on them. Eight reels all I need to do is find them in the personal archives (a storage trailer...) and pay to have them transferred to digital. I even purchased a 16mm projector and never got around to it. I fear that running them myself, might be ruining them myself.
