The year is 1850. Somebody’s Granny poses for a portrait with her knitting 163 years ago. The quality of the original daguerreotype is exceptional for the pre-Civil War-era. We’re looking into the eyes of an elderly woman who was very likely born around the time of the American Revolution. Her first president would have been George Washington – and she doesn’t appear to have a tooth in her mouth. “The better to gum you with, my dears”.

Now, here’s the “kicker”. Not only have we colorized “Granny” – but we’ve brought her back to life . . . sort of. Activate your Audio, then Click-tivate the Video below.
