She Colorizes Historical Photographs

A friend sent me this link, and the artist is amazing:
One day I decided to combine my fascination with history and skill using Photoshop.  I started to restore and put color into photos that were originally black and white, allowing people to see history from a new and colorful perspective. Each photo is made to be realistic by recognizing the value behind each one of them, respecting and preserving their stories, paying attention to the finer details and maintaining their original essence. Every completed work has gone through long and in depth research, and is supported by the opinions of experts in each particular area if necessary, to faithfully reproduce the original colors and atmosphere. My work ranges from simple portraits to complex and detailed images, taken from various historical periods covering a wide range of topics.

The one of General Patton back in the USA for the last time for the parade and to visit benefits from colouring, especially for bringing out the Red, White, and Blue. (and the photo of him imitating Julius Caesar and urinating in the Rhine should never be coloured.)
However, the picture of the girl (Ruby Bridges?) works better as agitprop in black and white.
