20 Dufaycolor Photos of Europe in the 1930s

Dufaycolor is an early British additive color photographic film process, introduced for motion picture use in 1932 and for still photography in 1935. It was derived from Louis Dufay’s Dioptichrome plates, a glass-based product for color still photography, introduced in France in 1909.

Europe in the 1930s

Both Dioptichrome and Dufaycolor worked on the same principles as the Autochrome process, but achieved their results using a layer of tiny color filter elements arrayed in a regular geometric pattern, unlike Autochrome’s random array of colored starch grains.

The manufacture of Dufaycolor film ended in the late 1950s. These amazing Dufaycolor photos were found by H*B, they are from the Dobson brewing family of Essex, on tour in the 1930s.
