Wow I didn’t know they could take color pictures back then.

I wonder why more pictures such as that weren’t taken. The process was too expensive maybe?

They couldn’t. What they did was put three color filters over the lens for each of three subsequent black-and-white shots, which the library of congress later recombined digitally back into color. Because things move in-between shots, you see unusual color artifacts on smoke, water, etc.
