    For Those With An Irish Connection: Old Colour Photos Of Ireland In 1913

    Link: Old colour photos of Ireland in 1913

    These images, which represent the first ever colour photographs taken in Ireland, were taken in 1913 by two French women, Marguerite Mespoulet and Madeleine Mignon-Alba, who used newly available autochrome colour plates.

    The novice photographers recorded life and historic sites on their two month journey through Ireland from Connemara to the Boyne Valley. They arrived in Ireland to take part in a world-wide project entitled ‘the Archives of the Planet’. The project was the brainchild of the French banker and philanthropist Albert Kahn whose ambition was to compile a “kind of photographic inventory of the surface of the earth as it was occupied and organised by Man at the beginning of the 20th century.”
