First color photos in America

A new book, An American Odyssey by Marc Walter, features hundreds of the first colour photographs of the United States. The rediscovered Photochrom and Photostint postcard images were produced by the Detroit Photographic Company between 1888 and 1924. Here is a selection from the book.
