Beautifully Restored WWII-Era Photographs (36 Photos)

Dave Hall materializes his passion for World War II history by coloring and bringing back to life old photos from that period. Dave selects the images from the Libraby of Congress and then uses Photoshop to colorize them. Originally most of the pictures were taken by Alfred T. Palmer for the Office of War Information, which at the time was responsible for releasing war news, recruiting women to work and promoting patriotism.

Dave is the founder and co-owner of Shorpy.com, vintage photography blog that features thousands of high-definition images from the 1850s to 1950s that he has retouched. Thanks to his efforts, the shots look as if they were taken today, and makes history speak to us in a whole new way.
