    Why is a picture from 1991 in black and white?

  2. JC says:

    Because the Historic American Buildings Survey, who produced the photograph, does large format black-and-white documentary photography of historic structures across the United States. You can find more about the program (and its companion programs, the Historic American Engineering Record and the Historic American Landscapes Survey) here: http://www.nps.gov/history/hdp/
