One small change please

The Minister of the Interior asked me to discreetly inquire if you could change the appearance of the, umh, white colored material to something else.

But otherwise, an original Kodachrome could not have improved anything. What an apparition!

Hang on to your (bowler) hat

I'm no automotive engineer, but I'm guessing that the solid rubber tires and leaf springs on that contraption made for a very rough ride. The machine is, however, so much more interesting than those mobile billboards one occasionally sees plying our streets nowadays. It must have been quite a sight after dark, what with all those light bulbs (I imagine the "Canada" sign on top was illuminated too). And yes, a fantastic work of colorizing! Thank you!

If what they wanted was babymaking immigrants, they were going after the wrong demographic.

Beautiful!

You did an outstanding job!
