Colorized image of the Old Chapel at Umass. This is one of the earliest photographs of the chapel. It was colorized for a documentary regarding the structure.

During my work at Umass Amherst; I had the opportunity to work on a Documentary Project regarding the Old Chapel at the Umass Campus. We went through archived records at the university to collect the images, this one being one of the earliest photographs of the Chapel. I colorized it based on its current colors to have an Idea what this chapel would look like when it was newer. Minimal colorization was taken to avoid over saturation, final products looks more akin to a postcard of the era.
