    I mean, I need to doubt whether there were color cameras back then, as well as doubt whethere there were color ads in 1930 (?)

    I wish anyone knew what Romania looked like 80 years ago.......

    Colored cameras were already a thing in the end of XIX century, beginning of the XX. Rare, but already there :)

    In this regard, I think, Romania has much in common with NC, meaning that it probably stayed the same :D
