Leon Gimpel: Autochrome Photography, 1915

TYWKIWDBI: "The Grenata Street Army" - color photos from 1915

Leon Gimpel was one of the first and perhaps one of the finest "autochrome" photographers. Working out of Paris in the early 1900s, he published some of the world's first color photographs when L'Illustration printed his autochromes of soldiers and of royalty visiting France. His most famous photos are those of children from Grenata Street (more pix from the set here).
