When we open ordinary history books, all we see there are boring old black and white photos that seem to have been taken so far away in time from us. This is probably why we always forget that people back then were actually real, with their own joys and sorrows. To make us feel a little bit closer to our ancestors and understand their way of living better, internet users decided to add color to the pictures taken in previous centuries.

iBuzz suggests that you take a quick tour through the past and have a look at these 20 colorized photos we’ve chosen for you.
