When I was a little girl, I used to watch westerns with my papa. I always thought that since the picture was black and white, that it was the same back then. I thought that everything was black and white. I also thought that my family came over on the covered wagons that you see on old westerns.:)

I used to believe that everything in the world was black and white. I thought everything in the world was colorized sometime in the 60's. I thought that because all te old photos,tv shows and movies I had seen were in black and white.

I used to believe that the world was in black and white when my mom was little. I had seen books of dinosaurs, and they were color, but all the pictures of my mom were in black and white, so i thought the world used to be in color, changed to black and white, then returned to color.

The first time I saw a black and white movie I thought that color didn't exist before 1950. I had nightmares about it until I saw a picture in color from 1943.

I used to believe the world was black and white until about the 1960's cuz I would see all these movies and shows and pictures that were black and white from when my mom was little. So one day I asked her, "When did the world turn color?" She had no idea what I was talking about because she knew it was always color. I believed this until I was like 8 or 9. Pretty old huh?

i thought that color film had always been around, and that they made those old movies black and white on purpose to show how serious they were suppose to be (because as a kid i didnt understand half the plots)

I used to believe that all pictures in black ad white meant that the people were black and white also. When i was six, I showed her a picture of her as a girl and I said "Holy crap, you have a great tan!" I was punished and she straightened me out.

When i was little I was watching an old show in black and white and my mom told me that when she was little all shows were in black and white. This made me wonder a bit so I asked her "was everything black and white back then"? not realizing that it wasn't the objects themselves that were black and white it was because of the camera that couldn't pick up the colour

I remember going to Disney World when I was about 8 and being astonished that Lucille Ball had red hair. I had only ever seen I Love Lucy in black and white and thought everything was black and white, not just tv.

I used to believe that black and white movies were completely true and accurate of the times, thus assuming that in real life there was no such thing as colour.. Black and white people, trees, clothes - everything!

I used to think that the world used to be black and white and not in colour because that is how the films looked!

When my mom used to refer to television, she would say things weren't in color, and I thought she was talking about the whole world! I imagined everything to be black and white.

I used to think that all movies were color to begin with, but became black and white when they got old. So, when I was watching "Dr No" on TV and my Dad said he saw it in the theatre, I asked him if it was better in color.

I remember asking my mother when I was about five years old, "how old were you when the world turned colour?" I had seen black & white movies from the 1950s, & knew my mother was born before that, & thought that watching the world turn colour would have been pretty cool.

That the world was black and white before the invention of colour television. It didn't occur to me that technology increased, i thought the world just evolved
