Levi L. Hill stirred up a sensation in the 1850s by announcing he had discovered a way to make color photographs directly from nature. The photographic community waited in vain for Hill to publish repeatable results of the process and his claim was dismissed as a hoax. Now, it appears his method combined a camera-made image that was enhanced with hand-applied color.
