The First World War in Colour project will consist of colourizing 150 images to commemorate both the 100th anniversary of the Armistice and the 150th anniversary of Canada’s Confederation.

These photos have been drawn from the vast archival collection at Library and Archives Canada as well as local archives across the country such as: the City of Toronto Archives, the Glenbow Museum and Archives, the City of Vancouver Archives, the Rooms in Newfoundland and the Nova Scotia Archives.

Please enjoy the virtual gallery of images below and stay tuned as additional photos will be added to our collection in the coming months!
