When we open up regular history books, all we see are boring old black and white photographs that seem to have been taken so far away from us.

To make us feel a little closer to our ancestors and better understand their way of life, Internet users decided to add color to pictures taken in past centuries.

We invite you to go back in time and take a look at these 14 color photographs that we have selected for you.
