The year is 1899. The date: February 13th – sandwiched between Lincoln’s birthday and Valentine’s Day. We’re kicking off the month of December with a colorized image of Baltimore, Maryland – Columbia Avenue & Cambridge, to be precise. The area was (and is) called “Pigtown”. It’s an historic neighborhood, marked by long brick rowhouses that look much as they did in the 19th century. These were the streets of a boy named George Herman Ruth. His birthplace in Pigtown is now a museum. The Babe was just 3 1/2 years old when this photo was taken. And yet, who knows? Only seconds after the camera captured this wintery image – a snowball might have come whizzing past the store in the foreground – thrown by the future Bambino. I’d like to think it could have happened.

Christmas is coming on like Gangbusters. It’s time to look through your family photo collection. A beautifully-colorized image of your ancestors (suitable for enlarging and framing) makes a wonderful keepsake for the entire family. This year, “Give the Christmas Present of Christmas Past!”
