This version of the Rose Garden photograph in this Gallery has been digitally remastered to look like an original autochrome photograph from 1908, which was when the Park was opened (to house the Scottish National Exhibition). The autochrome process was invented by the Lumiere Brothers in France round about that time. Its characteristics were increased "grain" caused by using finely powdered, dyed potato starch (!) and slightly washed out colour. Skies were frequently overexposed and almost white. The result looked like a hand-coloured black and white image but the process was completely different from hand colouring.
