Interesting! Would love to see some pics of Berlin and London since those cities have changed so much since 1985.

Glad you liked it.
I am really no specialist in image processing and I don't even have Photoshop.
Any software will do as long as it is able to separate RGB channels and to adjust the colour temperature.
Even IrfanView can do some basic work on such small images.
I am using Paint Shop Pro but that means nothing.
Here is another one - Nr. 28 (quite a challenge since most of the green channel was lost).

That might be interesting to process the pictures digitally to get back to their original color spectrum, but that's also nice to see how their colors changed throughout the years...
Anyhow, I really like this idea of posting argentic pictures to show Paris and suburbian areas 25 years after.
Thanks Capricorn2000 !

nice idea, not only the sights (the Eiffel tower did not change that much within the last 25 years), also people/lifestyle/clothing/cars which document such an era make such threads interesting.
