"If you talk to God you're religious. If God talks to you, you're psychotic."

Christina Bevan – 1913

These magical autochromes were taken 107 years ago at Lulworth Cove in Dorset, in August 1913 – less than a year before The Great War.

They were taken by Lieutenant Colonel Mervyn O’Gorman and show the young Christina Bevan (1897-1981). They are original colour & not colourised.

 

I confess to not being a fan of colourised pictures but these are truly exceptional
