Color Photos in the National Geographic Magazine

I was reading a book about the National Geographic Society's 100th Aniversary.
In it I found that the November 1910 issue was the very first issue to have colored photos.
It has three of those pictures. The first is a picture of some Japenese ladies. The second is some Chinese people riding on a horse-drawn cart. The third is a man from South Korea wearing a raincoat and hat made out of some sort of grasses. I thought it was interesting looking at the pictures and thinking that they weren't just pictures of people in costumes - these are pictures of people wearing their everyday clothes and doing ordinary things.
