In an increasingly complex modern world, an age of fast information and startling clear images that pop off our screens, many pictures from the past now lay forgotten, gathering dust in old shoeboxes or slowly fading away in the pages of old books.  

Remembering the Past’s mission is to foster and encourage interest within a new generation in the past.

Although the idea is simple, enhanced, colourised and reimagined images have a surprisingly emotional effect, allowing people to relate to them easier, and this makes a historical picture a whole lot more powerful. 


This site does not intend to replace the historical and intrinsic value of the original picture. Our purpose is to foster and encourage interest in history by presenting a different perspective of the past.
