Not only was Tennyson ennobled... his was a face full of gravitas!

Hmmm, not too sure about colouring these great sepias or black and white photographs.
There is something 'historical' about leaving them as original.

Hi Hels and Kevin,

Thank you both for commenting. I know how you feel Kevin, some things should be left alone and not messed with but I am curious to know what color his clothes were or his features in full color! Tennyson didn't always wear black. Have you seen the photographs of him in his cream colored men's suit? Oh yeah!!!
