Colorful retro photographs from the 1890s

These colorful postcards featuring picturesque landscapes, windmills and city canals were created in the Netherlands in the late 1890s. An employee of a Swiss printing company, Hans Jakob Schmidt, was able to turn black and white images into realistic color images. He did it using chromolithography technology using printed stones, and thanks to this, today we can see how people lived about 150 years ago.
