I used to believe that the people in black and white films and tv programmes were actually black and white, and I always wondered how they managed without colour!

I know a girl who used to think that prior to the late 1950s (when color television was introduced) the world was in black-and-white, and colors were invented around that time.

When i was little, i used to believe that the world was in black and white 50 and more years ago, because movies and TV shows from that time were in black in white. I remember when i went up to my dad and asked "what was it like when the world was black and white?". He didnt understand so i told him and he laughed. I got confused and he told me the truth. I wonder what life would be like if everything WAS in black and white...

I remember once, my Grandma gave me her crystal ball to look at. I think it was to keep me quiet and entertained - while she chatted to my Mother. I sat there for ages staring into this crystal ball. Finally, I went and asked my Grandma if the pictures would be in black and white or colour! I guessed that as the "ball" was old - it might be in black and white - but it should be showing me the future.....she laughed, but I'm still non the wiser.

I used to believe that in the 'olden days', things really were black and white. I only discovered the truth when i asked mum and dad when colour was invented.

i used to think that when i would see a picture in black and white that it was how things used to be like everything was black and white. so i asked my mom one day "mom, when u were growing up were the vegetables black and white, ya no the carrots and cucumbers and stuff?" she just started to laugh and laugh and then she finally explained to me that only the pictures were printed in black and white, not actual life.

I used to belive that the world was Black + White Before the late 50's. Like somebody invented colour and all of a sudden we could all see it.

I thought Walt Disney was the man that found it.

My mum had told me that in the olden days there were black + white tvs and photos. I actually thought that the whole world was black + white.

I used to think that the world used to be in black and white because of old tv shows. When I asked my Grandfather when we became color he said "Ohh.. About 15 years ago." Which didnt help the situation.

When I was little, I looked at my mom's old black and white photographs and also saw black and white TV shows from the past and used to think actual people used to see the world in black and white, until they invented color television and color photographs and started magically seeing in colour. But now I know pretty much everyone sees in colour....except those whom are colorblnd....

I used to think that because all the old movies were in black and white, that everything back then was.

When I first saw "the Wizard of Oz" I thought that all of the world was in black and white until that movie came out, because it started in black and whit then went to color. I believed this until I was nine.

When my brother was very young, he asked my mom when the world turned into colour. By watching old TV shows in black and white, he thought that the whole world was that way.
