I used to believe --based on the instances when I saw old black and white films and television programs-- that everything was in black and white when my parents were young. I thought the world was devoid of color until sometime in the late 1960s.

I used to think that color wasn't invented until the 1970's. All our old family photos were in black and white and old tv shows were not in color, so I just assumed that there were no colors back then...

I used to believe (no doubt due to my love of The Wizard of Oz) that the world used to be in black and white and just eventually turned to color. That is why older movies and tv were all in black and white and why poor Dorothy had such a shock at entering a place already turned to color.

I used to believe the world used to be black and white until very recently due to old photos and old movies showing me a glimpse before colored footage.

I used to believe that black and white movies were made before color was invented. I thought eveything was in black and white untill color was discovered in the 60's

My neice asked me when she was five years old what life was like when everything was black and white? I asked her, "Do you mean TV shows and photos?" She looked at me with an odd look and said "Didn't you see everything in black and white?" When I told her I saw in color and only TV shows and photographs were black and white she felt a lot better.

I used to think that the past was all in black and white, because of all the old photographs. Like my grandparents were all black and white and gray, and such. I believed that my mom used to be black and white too, until I saw her in colored pictures. Then she explained it to me, and I still think it would be cool if it were black and white. lol

I used to believe that since t.v.'s were in black and white, back then, that everyone saw only black and white in real life...until they came out with color t.v.'s. Then when that was out, that's when everyone saw in color!

Until I was about 12 I believed that the color in old movies was the way people saw everything back then. Like the slightly off color of 60's and 70's movies I thought people and things just looked like that. Same with black and white movies.

I used to believe that everything in the world was black and white, and that color, in general, was not invented until recently.

My Dad watched documentaries about WWI and WWII when I was a kid. The footage was all in black and white, and I thought that the whole world did not exist in color up to a later point.

Also, I once thought that people in photographs were somehow frozen there and continually holding their breath.
