Tying in with the BBC television series of the same name, The Wonderful World of Albert-Kahn: Colour photographs from a Lost Age  by David Okuefuna is an ‘astonishing collection of early true-colour photographs from around the world.’

 These are true colour pictures from what is usually considered a black and white age, capturing people and events from 40 countries early in the 20th century. Many of the photographs have never been published before, most featuring everyday people, providing a snapshot of cultures past. Check it out at your Library.
