The roll-over ('Original') image on this page is my 'Import' state inside Lightroom after scanning an old B&W negative in the RGB color space. Sometimes you can get an interesting monochromatic "toning"  as a result.

The scanner picks up color from the film base resulting from the development process – different film and different film developers provides variations in "toning".

In this case, because I had not entirely cleared the hypo ('fixer') at the end of the clearing process of developing my film, there remained a bit of chemical "fog" that dried into the film creating its chromatic "ugliness" evident in the 'roll-over version'.
