Until photographs were able to be developed with color, people often had to guess at the hues of depicted scenes, unless they were present at the time the picture was taken, or the colors were specifically noted on the back. Furthermore, as years pass and stories about the subjects of these images are lost, viewers become less able to tie together the picture before them and the rest of the world that they experience every day. Therefore, when I initially viewed this picture of The Yellow Peril from 1943, I knew nothing about it but that it was probably a yellow airplane. Then I got curious.
