Colorizing Gay Street

I came across a photo imaging tool today that colorizes black and white photos.  Colorize-It.com, part of Algorithmia, makes it easy to add color to photos.  I went to the Library of Congress website and found an image of Gay Street, looking north from Wall Street.  I assume the photo was taken around 1905 or so.

The first image is right from the LoC.  The second shows a partially colorized version.  The third shows the final product.

Is it perfect?  No.  Is it fun?  Yes.
