These seldom-seen pictures are genuine colour photographs of Cornish people, towns, villages, farms, churches, moorland and coast, all taken in August 1913. None of the pictures are colourised – they are autochromes, the earliest commercially available colour photography system. The pictures were taken by Auguste Leon, for Albert Khan, and are drawn from Albert Khan’s “Archives of the Planet”.
