Wonderful Old Photos of Ireland

Wonderful Old Photos of Ireland

Click on photo to go to this amazing collection of colorized photographs taken by American photographer Branson DeCou (1892-1941) between 1932 and 1935. DeCou spent nearly thirty years travelling the world and his images of Ireland give us a rare glimpse into a way of life that has long since disappeared. His fantastic catalog of photos is now stored at the University of California, Santa Cruz where they can be accessed digitally here. The photos were originally taken in black and white and colour was then added by DeCou with aniline ink.
