When I was little I used to think the world had been in black and white up to a certain time (I guess because I had seen a lot of black and white movies growing up). I figured the world probably became colorized around 1950 something. ;)

When I was about 2-5 I used to believe that color didn't always exist. That someone actually invented color. I had all the proof, pictures of my grandparents and baby pictures of my parents were in black and white, old movies were in black and white.

When I was little I thought that people saw in black and white before the advent of color TV. Once color TV was invented people began to see in color too.

I used to think that the WORLD used to be black and white, due to hearing some relative say "back when we were black and white", meaning "when I was younger". :]

My daughter used to believe that people in the 40's and 50's were gray and white instead of living color because of the photos she had seen from back then, before color photography.

I used to believe that everything was in black and white back in the "old days" because of all the black and white programs and films.

I used to think that a few years after the television was invented that the world changed from everything being in black and white to everything being in color.

I didn't ever think of the cameras changing.

I used to believe that black people couldn't see in color, that everything looked like an episode of "I Love Lucy" to them. That was why they were called black, because they saw in black and white. I never could figure out why I was white and saw color, though.

My mother used to show me pictures from "the old days" that were in black and white. This led me to believe that the whole world was black and whitein "the old days"

When I was (really) young I used to believe that pre-1950's the world and everything in it was black and white because that was what old films and tv looked like.

When I was little I believed that when my parents were young, the world was black and white. I believed it until I asked my mom when color came in and what she thought of it. She just looked at me funny and asked me what I meant. She laughed when I told her. :-)

I used to be told, whilst watching TV, that before 1960, or whenever, there was no colour. I used to think that before 1960, ther was no colour at all. Trees were grey. Water was grey. People were black or white or grey.

because all the old movies on tv were in black and white i thought that this meant the world used to be in black and white
