A Colorized Photo of Photographers Traveling with their Gear in 1912 Toronto



Here’s a colorized 1912 photograph of freelance photographers Bill and Joseph James riding a motorcycle in Toronto. Their father was William James, who’s often referred to as Canada’s first photojournalist. The James family created a huge photographic record of Toronto that spanned decades starting in 1909.

The original B&W photo is from the City of Toronto Archives, which has over 6,000 photos by the family in its collection. The version shown above was colorized by Mark Truelove of Canadian Colour.
