Early 20th Century Photography

I have recently discovered a love of mine while stumbling on the net on stumbleupon.com: early 20th century color photography. Something about seeing over a hundred years into the past in color makes the experience all more real. It’s as if the presence of vibrant blues in countryside skies and deep reds in a soldier’s uniform transport me to the moment of the photograph’s inception. I feel if the photos were to be enlarged and posted on a wall I could take one cautious but curious step into the past. This is all coming from someone with a heavy black & white film background, but with now a strong appreciation for early feats in photography.
