Colorized Photos of 1931 Moscow

Yesterday, we shared with you more colorized black & white photos from decades past. Today, we found a collection of photos from Moscow in the 1930's that seem to have been colorized with paint which give us a more vivid view of Russian life back then. What do you think of these tint alterations?

Photo via Retronaut

You’ve got the Red Square, the Kremlin, street sweepers, and protesters, all part and parcel of life in 1931 Russia. There’s not much artist info on these images we found on Retronaut, but these colorized vintage photos definitely give a fresh perspective on the way of Soviet life back then.

Fancy the rarest, most sought-after Russian cameras? We have the former USSR to bring you the finest, handsomest artifacts of recent and old times’ past. Grab any of the cultish, deadstock precision-built cameras from the facilities of Mother Russia in our Shop!

    Find more colour Russian photos... I remember a Russian photo of the Emir of Dagestan(?) from ~1910 from a 3 plate negative. I think Russians may have invented colour photography.
