Welcome to the American Photo photo blog. We colorize black & white photos for museums, educators, media . . . and families like yours.

A visit to our website gets you started:

The year is 1971. American Photo Colorizing offers special reduced prices for family photo colorizing. Most high school yearbook photos were black & white through the 1970s. We’re featuring several yearbook photos this week of my own 1972 graduating class from Duxbury High School in Massachusetts. Here is Susan Marie McCarthy posing in the sand of Duxbury Beach, across the world’s longest wooden bridge from Powder Point Avenue. It’s September 1971.

Duxbury is located north of Plymouth, and was the hometown of many of the original pilgrims who came over on the Mayflower, like Myles Standish, John Alden and Priscilla Alden. This photo of Susan was scanned from the yearbook, and only measured about 3″ across. Even at this small size, it provided a fairly clean image for colorizing. Seems like yesterday we posed for these photos – and yet Susan, like many of the girls in our class – is probably a grandmother today.

At American Photo Colorizing, our goal is to shred the black & white veil that separates us from the exciting, vibrant lives of those who came before us. It’s time to “Go Color” with your vintage and antique family photos.

Remember . . . your ancestors are counting on YOU!
