Here are a selection of photos I saw on dailymail.co.uk. They are incredible photos from the early 20th century, and were taken by the millionaire French banker and philanthropist Albert Kahn.
Using his massive fortune, Kahn sent a group of photographers to more than 50 countries worldwide. They took the earliest colour photographs in countries such as Brazil, the United States and Benin republic.
I think they are simply mind blowing. Please I would love to get your comments on the photos. What do you think?
