    Did they have color photography in 1943? If the color was added then it's done amazingly realistically.

    Kodachrome (the first modern colour film) came out in 1936, so yes, all these LoC colour images are "real" colour, not added after to a B&W shot.

    Wikipedia article on colour film.

    Note the horn of Africa and the small country in northern Somalia. That's British Somaliland, which joined French Somaliland in 1960 to form Somalia. In 1991 when the civil war started, the old British Somaliland declared independence and has since maintained a stable, democratic government while the rest of the country languishes in an endless civil war. So far, no country except Ethiopia has recognized Somaliland, though there are rumors that recognition may be comming.

    Note also that Burma (Myanmar) is part of British India. This may be an old map, I think the British had seperated Burma by this time (though independence did not come until the late 1940's.) Burma had never historically been part of India and many Burmese were enraged when the British made it part of their Raj after overthrowing the monarchy in the 1880's.

    Hey, it's the freckled girl again, and with a beautiful smile, too. I'm guessing she was real proud of her bravery during the inoculation. :)
