Due to black and white films, I used to think that the world really had been black and white until the early 20th century!

My brother once asked my dad why all old photos were black and white. My dad told him that the world was black and white until some clever guy came along and invented colour. My brother believed that for ages, until he was told otherwise at school.

When I was little I used to watch a lot of old black and white movies on t.v,and i used to think that the world was black and white then (No colours AT ALL) , until around the 70s when colour came into the world and everything turned that way, thats why the movies are colour now! haha

I used to believe that before colour tv's were around, everything was black and white. When I looked in the tv guide and next to an old movie it would say "B&W" I would look outside and imagine that the trees were black and white. I asked mum if she liked it when colour was invented. She gave me a funny look, so I said "By the way, who invented colour?"

When my dad told me TV was in black and white when he was young, he said, "Everything was black and white." I used to believe that the whole world was in black and white. Everything.

When I was about 10, colour tv was just being introduced in Australia. I remember looking at old photos of my dad, (in black and white) and asking him if colour hadn't been invented when he was my age. Of course, he let me believe the whole world was black and white

I had a friend who was looking through some old photos from the 40's and 50's with her mom. in a very profound sort of way she said, "Mom, what was it like when color came into the world?! It must have been amazing!" (she was about 12 at the time) Up until that time she had apparently been convinced that old photos and tv shows were in black and white because the entire world looked that way.

when my brother was little, he used to belive that, because all old movies are in black and white, everything was black and white in "the olden days", he would always ask my mum what it was like to be in black and white.

When I was a kid, all the old movies were in black and white, so I used to think the whole world had no color in the past.

When I was younger and would see old black-and-white photos of my grandmother, I used to think that the world really WAS in black-and-white back then!

From watching early TV shows, ie Honeymooners or old news reels, I actually thought the entire world itself use to be in black and white, and not until the 50's did everything come into color.

Ok, I was a kid ... I used to believe before, all the world before 1960 was in black and white ... that was the colors I saw on photos and black and white movies... I thought that people during World War 1 would see all in black and white ... their clothes were black and white ... (I still have the same feeling today at times ...)
Fun thing is that I thought even before (prehistory...) all was in colors ... due to hollywood movies ... but 1850-1960 all was in black and white .. go fig ...

When I was very young I was fascinated looking at picture albums in black and white. So I thought that the world must have been black and white before my time!

I once asked my Grandmother if the world used to be in black and white because all of the older television shows were in b/w.
