In my merry Oldsmobile . . . This Washingtonian lass shows no fear as she rolls along the streets of America’s capitol, scooting between the ‘muscle cars’ of the Roaring ’20s. She may have been a ‘flapper’ or a Senator’s secretary – perhaps she was both. The year is 1924, and the future looks bright ahead.

One of our 7 colorized images featured in the exhibit, “Chop Suey On The Plains”, at The Royal Alberta Museum in Edmonton, Alberta Canada – now thru April 27 2014. Not only is the exhibit being given prominent coverage in the Canadian press – Canadian TV is also getting in on it. Several of our large colorized images have popped up on the nightly news on CTV. And we’d been thinking, “Nice quiet museum exhibit in Canada”.
California trapper, Seth Kinman was one of the most colorful characters of the old west. His tales are so numerous, and varied in virtue, that it’s difficult to single out just one – but I will. Kinman became famous for his handmade chairs – fashioned from Humbolt County elk horns and grizzly bear parts, as seen in the photo below. This particular chair was about to be presented to President Andrew Johnson at the White House.
In November 1864, he presented an elkhorn chair to President Abraham Lincoln, and entertained guests in attendence with a tune on his fiddle, fashioned from a mule skull. Kinman and Lincoln formed a strong friendship – and he marched in Lincoln’s funeral procession, dressed in buckskin.
American Photo Colorizing provided the color for this already colorful pioneer of the western wilderness. We’ll have a series of special posts starting tomorrow, May 1st. Visit us today at: http://www.americanphotocolorizing.com

And you thought Judge Judy looked tough! Judge William Cranch, shown here in 1850, was ciruit judge to Washington, DC and reporter to the Supreme Court. His aunt and uncle were John and Abigail Adams, while their son, John Quincy Adams was his cousin. His most notable accomplishments, of course, were the swearings-in of presidents, John Tyler and the legendary Millard Fillmore.
