The year is 1914. Rural mail delivery by horse a buggy. This was how the mail was delivered in much of America 100 years ago. The original image was shot by prominent Washington, DC photographers, George Harris and Martha Ewing. The likelihood is this photo was taken in rural Virginia or Maryland.

Here is a dedicated mail carrier who lives up to the unofficial motto of the U.S. Post Office: “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds”.

The History Channel documentary, “Blood & Glory- The Civil War In Color is PREMIERING TONIGHT – and American Photo Colorizing is a part of it!

History Channel Black Logo 1

We’re very excited to be on the team that created colorized pictures for the first ever Civil War documentary to feature a wide selection of photos. This is going to change the way we look at History – especially the young people, who never grew up with Black & White.

Back on July 4th, 2002, American Photo Colorizing kicked off what has become a genre – Historic Photo Colorizing. We’ve waited 13 years for this moment – and to have our colorizing work included just blows us away.

Tonight, Part 2 of “Blood & Glory – The Civil War In Color” airs – and we at American Photo Colorizing are thrilled to be part of it! Check your local cable provider for air times. Then gather the family around the TV for this exciting History Channel presentation.

Now, here’s a Civil War “Before & After” to hold you all until show time. The year is 1865 – and this Confederate locomotive sits amidst the ruins of Richmond, Virginia. A lot of time was invested in color-rendering the damage to the locomotive itself

The History Channel will be airing a two-part TV Special, “Blood & Glory: The Civil War In Color” – and American Photo Colorizing was commissioned to produce 18 Colorized Civil War Images for it.

We’ll be among a number of colorizers – but, if you’re familiar with our work – you’ll recognize our images by their extreme ‘attention to detail’ and realism.

While we can’t share with you any of the photos we colorized for the TV program, here’s one of our favorite “Before & After” shots from the golden-olden days of the American Civil War – 150 years ago.

HORSELESS CARRIAGE RIDE (1907)

APC - BLOG LOGO (540x540)

Welcome to the American Photo Colorizing .com photo blog.

We’re a bit late in the day for posting, but we’ve been busy with a couple of exciting photo colorizing projects – one of which is a TV documentary we’ve been contributing to . . . but, more on that in a week or two, as we get closer to the air date. Right now we’re sworn to zip the lip!

If you’d like us to colorize images for your museum, publication, documentary – or even for the family – a visit to our website gets you started: http://www.americanphotocolorizing.com

The year is 1907. Here’s a Dover, New Jersey couple out for a ride in their new “Horseless Carriage” – complete with tiller-steering. This is one of those times when an historically-significant, yet, otherwise average black and white photo – becomes a distinctive work of art through the technology of photo colorizing. Best of all – it’s like going back in time to 1907. YOUR world isn’t black and white . . . Neither was THEIRS.
