Because of black and white photos and films, I used to believe that in the 'olden days', they didn't have colour because it wasn't invented yet.

I used to believe that black and white movies were completely true and accurate of the times, thus assuming that in real life there was no such thing as colour.. Black and white people, trees, clothes - everything!

I didn't understand why old movies were in black and white. I was 70% sure that colors must have existed back then. I pondered over the problem for days...maybe weeks. I came up with several theories; I thought maybe it was because all the people were sick, or that they lost their colors somehow, or the hadn't discovered colors, or that people couldn't afford colors, or that they were like the old orthodox amish or something and chose to be in black and white. (no offense; I was just a stupid lil kid) But, if they were amish, I didn't understand why they were in movies.

I, like so many others, was convinced (by my dad) that a long time ago when he was little the world existed only in black and white. but then they invented skittles.

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 believe that in the past, the world was in black and white, or at least sepia-toned, like the old movies and photos in Life magazine. Only recently, when the History Channel has been showing documentary footage of World War II in color, have I realized that I used to think this. Hitler and his cronies ought to have gray skin, don't you think?

When I was little and watched black and white tv, I wondered when the world changed to color. I was thinking around the 60's, although the world was pretty grainy in those days. It never occurred to me that tv would show things in black and white.

When my daughter was about 6 or 7 years old she was asking about some event in the past, presumedly during the time when I was young. She said, " You know when everything was black and white."
I realized that her perception of the world was based on old black and white photos and movies of the period when I was young.

When I was younger I thought that since all the tv shows that were in the "olden days" were in black and white, then there wasn't any color in real life back then either.

I used to think that the old days were actually black and white because of the old black and white pictures.

When I was little , I remember watching black n white tv shows like The Honeymooners and Three Stooges... This then lead to my belief that old people can only see in black and white, while kids my age can see in color because were we born in the present times with color tv and cameras..

I use to beleive, when I was young, that the world didn't get its color until after I was born. Everything on TV was black and white before I was born.

I used to believe the world was black and white until about the 1960's cuz I would see all these movies and shows and pictures that were black and white from when my mom was little. So one day I asked her, "When did the world turn color?" She had no idea what I was talking about because she knew it was always color. I believed this until I was like 8 or 9. Pretty old huh?

I used to believe that my parents and anyone older used to live in a black and white world without color. This belief came from seeing all of their photos being in black and white.

I used to believe that in the 'olden days' before I was born, the whole world was in black and white. I believed this because of the fact all the old tv shows were in black and white so i assumed that's how they filmed the world.

When my mom used to show me pictures of her as a child, they were in black and white, so I thought that the world was black and white when she was younger...I always asked her when the world became colorful, but I dont think she understood me...I just couldnt figure it out hehe...

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!
