The year is 1939. Here’s the downtown area of Woodstock, Vermont – as seen through the lens of FSA photographer, Marion Post Wolcott during the winter of 1939-1940. What I find fascinating is the contrast of old and new – the horse-drawn carriage with the automobile. Granted, it’s an older model car – but the point is made.
This is an early colorization of mine, from 2002, when we first went online. For many years, American Photo Colorizing.com was the only website dedicated to historical colorized photos. I’ve been told we’ve inspired many photo colorizers over the years to try their hand at this new artform. Today, photo colorizing is still a fledgling means of expression waiting to explode onto the world stage – but, it is quickly gaining acceptance via the networks of global social media. It’s been a long time coming.
