Redruth Young Men's Bible Class - in colour

It's amazing how colourised old photos can make the past come alive.
The Cornish Studies Library in Redruth is currently showing an exhibition of tinted old photos, including this one of Redruth Young Men's Bible Class on a pre-World War One outing.

It made me think of Henry Cobb's colour photographs of Warsaw after World War Two - though amazingly these weren't colourised but taken on early colour film.
