Tvinde Waterfall and hotel

Landscape and marine views of late 19th Century Norway created by the Detroit Publishing Company using the Photochrom process.
Photochrom, invented in the 1880s, is a process for producing colorized images from black-and-white photographic negatives via the direct photographic transfer of a negative onto lithographic printing plates. The process is a photographic variant of chromolithography (color lithography).
