When I was about six years old, I loved watching black-and-white t.v. shows. But because I watched them, I thought that life when there was only black and white t.v. was actualy black and white!
I thought that everything in the world was black and white until color was "invented". I didn't know it was only referring to tv.
I used to think that New York was only black and white, but every other place had colors because i was watching a movie one time about New York and it was only in black and white so I thought that it was really oonly black and white.....
I used to think that everything, as in all the people and the world and everything - was in black and white. According to me at 5 years old, there was no color 'in the good old days'. Those black and white photos and television programs of the olden days can be very misleading for a little kiddy. XD
Until I was maybe 12, I thought that the world used to exist "in black and white" like old movies / photos. When I was ~6 or so, I asked a friend's mom about my theory and she actually told me my theory was right.
Becauses most of the older TV shows and movies were in Black and White I thought that color didn't exist until about 1950.
I used to believe that the times when my Mom was a little girl everything accually black and white because of the pictures.
When i was a kid in the 70s and i saw black and white tv shows and films, i honestly thought that the world was black and white till at least the 1960s!!!!
I used to belief that people before doesn't have colors, I used to think that only black and white colors exist before. Because most of B/W movies i watched were old movies.
I used to believe the world was in black and white back when colour television hadn't been invented yet.
When I was little I thought that since old TV shows were black and white, that's what life really looked like back then. Sometime in the late 60s, everything in life gradually transitioned from black and white to color.
When i was about 5 my mum thought it would be funny to tell me that the world used to be black and white. What did i know i wasn't back there then and everyone told me about black and white T.V's. It took me aqbout a year to figure out she was lying but she still tortures me about it to this day!
when i was little, i saw a few whitw and black photos for the 40's. after that, i used to think that people, places, everything was white and black and that there was no colour until just before i was born.
actually, it was my son. when he was 6 or seven..he was a big fan of Nick at Nite..they reran old black and white t.v. shows. " I Love Lucy" " The Honeymooners" etc.... he would always ask me what year they were made....then color reruns ( "Batman', Partidge Family) began to broadcast in color.. He assumed that color wasn't invented intil 1960..not only for T.V. but for the whole world...
when i was little i used to watch "i love lucy" with my mom and i used to think that people back then were actually black and white, not just on the TV. i believed that for years..
When I was little my grandmother used to show me pictures of her when she was little and stuff like that and of corse they were all black and white so I used to think the whole world was black and white not the film on the cameras.
My friend believed in 4th grade thought that old shows were in black in white because there was no color in the world yet. I asked her how color was discovered and she still doesn't know. :)
When looking through black and white photos, my 5 year old cousin asked me " so when did the world get colour?" she thought everything was black and white in thye 'olden days'.
When I was younger, I used to believe that because old television shows were broadcast in black and white, that the world had not yet discovered color.
