This site says the first colour photos were taken in 1907. Yours must have been some of the earliest, or have you redone all of the colour?

I think the first colour photo was James Clerk Maxwell in 1855

Of course Autochrome was the first actual colour film, the OP is using Trichromic separations (3 B&W filtered negs)

I have some Autochomes

And have made many Trichromes similar in process to the OP over the years:

Here is one of mine on Neopan B&W film
