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.

You know how old movies are in black and white? I used to believe that the whole world was black in white in the old days.

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.

When I was ickle, I used to think that in the olden days of black and white films and photography, people saw in black and white. And some time in the 1950's people learnt to see in colour.

When I was three years old I would look through our old family photo albums. Each album covered about two years and the years were labeled on each. Since the photos in the albums from the 1970's were in color but the photos in earlier albums were in black and white, I used to believe that color did not exist in the world and was not "invented" until 1970 .

When I was wee and watching television programmes in Black and White (on a colour television) I used to think that the world was once colourless and only 'black and white'. My mum put me straight once I'd posed this as a question to her!

They did laugh when i asked them what the world was like "before colour"!!!

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....

When I was young and I would watch an old black and white TV show, I thought that it was in black and white because back then the world was only black and white. I didn't know that it had anything to do with the film.

I was born in the 80s, and when I was young I thought that when tv shows/movies were in black & white that was how the whole world was, and colors weren't invented until the 60s, when color tvs appeared.

I used to believe that the world was truly black and white in the 1950s, because all the old television shows were. I also believed that my grandmother's ancient television set was tuned to the year 1955-ish. We were only there on Sunday afternoons when the only things on television were old black and white movies.

I used to think that the old black and white movies meant that people didn't see in color back then. That up until color tv came into play that everyone saw in black and white.

I used to love looking at old photographs as a child and, somehow, in my mind I got the idea that the world was literally gray (black and white). Then, my mother mentioned something about a certain sweater being a particular color and my worldview came crashing down.

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

That my granparents, when they were young, used to see in black & white. When I was six or so, and after watching one of his favourite films (in black & white, of course)with him, I asked my grandfather when he started to see in colour and if it came as a bit of shock. He gave a "convincing" answer. He lived off the story for years.

I used to believe the world was black and white until they invented color tv's. I used to ask my mom what it was like when they couldn't see anything in color and what it was like when the whole world could finally see in color.

When I was a child (up to about four years old) I used to believe when my parents were growing up, EVERYTHING was black and white, because all the old film and pictures I'd seen from back then were black and white.

I used to believe that the world was black and white and that films/photographs in black and white were actually colour photos of how it was back then. I'm glad I wasn't the only one - some of my childhood demons have finally been laid to rest. I am NORMAL!! WAYHAY!!!!!!!!
