When they submitted their images for publication the printers and ad agencies knew what the color should look like. The agencies also had someone to blame if the colors did not come out right. They could say to the printer you did not match the chrome, that was the right color. The photographer also had an out because everyone knew what the image would look like going in. It is really hard to tell colors when looking at negs. Now with the advent of computers it is much easier. You scan the image into the computer then convert it to a positive and you have a pretty good ideal of colors.
