Hi Beau,

Actually it was done as a Photochrom in a process that predates  
Photoshop by more than 100 years.   from
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photochrom  the following:

Photochrom[Note 1] (also called the Aäc process) prints are colorized  
images produced from black and white photographic negatives via the  
direct photographic transfer of a negative onto lithographic printing

Sometimes it pays to look back a bit to see the original techniques.   
Kind of
like learning counterpoint before playing jazz.
