When I was a child I used to think that the world was black and white in the past, like in the movies.
that the world was black and white back in the "old" days. I got this impression from all the black and white shows I used to watch as a kid (Andy Griffith Show, Leave it to Beaver, etc...)
Messed up huh?
Watching TV in B&W, I thought that 'in the olden days', there was no color, that people walked around in their B&W lives.
I always wondered, why people in the past only wore black and white clothes...
Because all the pictures of my mum and dad as kids were in black and white, I used to believe that the whole world was black and white when they were little.
I used to believe back then the world was in black and white. I assumed color was invented after many years.
I used to believe that before colour photography, the world was black and white.
When I was younger and was looking through my moms photo albums, I thought that everything was black and white. Not sure where I thought all the colour came from though....
I used that in oldentimes, things were actually black and white like in the photographs, and that colour wasn't introduced to the world until the 70s.
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 believe that the olden days were black and white when I was about 3 from seing old movies.
I use to believe that the world was black and white until color was invented for television.
My daughter asked her grandfather if he used to drive a rusty camel back in the black and white days. She was 5.
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!
