1936
In 1861 Maxwell presented the first colour photograph by photographing a tartan ribbon 3 times, each time with a different colour filter over the lens. As colour transparencies they were projected with 3 different projectors, each equipped with the same colour filter used to take its image. The three images formed a full colour image.
