Autochrome is an early colour photographic process patented by the Lumiere brothers in France in 1903. It was the main colour photographic process available to photographers until as late as the 1930s when Dufaycolour became popular. It was an interesting process as potato starch was used in the manufacture of the plates. This Autochrome example is by Charles Driffield taken at sometime between 1907 and his death in 1915.
