A Canadian organization is telling the stories from the First World War in a new light, by painstakingly adding colour to historic black and white photos.
“The First World War in Colour” project commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Armistice.
For the project, the Vimy Foundation selected 150 First World War photos from Library and Archives Canada to meticulously colourize and gather into an online gallery.
Executive Director Jeremy Diamond told CTV News Channel that the project aims to connect a new generation of Canadians with the realities of the war.
