When you look at old black and white photos, the past seems very far away. This is no more so true than First World War pictures. And yet in the course of time, it was only yesterday.
The Vimy Foundation is launching a project to bring Canada’s First World war efforts to life. We will colourize 100 photos from the First World War and release a book with these images to help bridge the gap between Canadians today and the soldiers, nurses, engineers, mothers and children of 100 years ago.
