Andorra Passport 1942 with color photo

A beautiful and one of the rarest passports I ever had went into the collection of a passionate passport collector. You can’t have everything and my focus is on “German documents”. This Andorran passport was issued in 1942. This passport type is scarce, but it also has a color picture of a pretty woman, which is unusual for this time. Never before did I see a passport from the 1940s with a color(ized)  photography! Indeed a unique document! The condition of the document is excellent. Well, now meet pretty Rosa… Andorra Passport color photo

Remember, the passport photo is roughly just one hundred years in use. In the beginning, there were no passport photo rules. All allowed as long the image was fitting on/in the passport. And precisely this makes a passport for me also so attractive as you can find sometimes very strange and unusual pictures of people. Sitting on a bench, on a horse, with a dog, or with your favorite musical instrument. Andorra Passport color photo

Color photography has been the dominant form of photography since the 1970s, with monochrome photography mostly relegated to niche markets such as art photography. The foundation of virtually all practical color processes, the three-color method was first suggested in an 1855 paper by Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell. Thomas Sutton produced the first color photograph for a Maxwell lecture in 1861. Andorra Passport color photo
