The year is 1949. Milton Berle was television’s first superstar. “Uncle Miltie” owned Tuesday night during the late 1940s and 1950s. His comedy-variety show featured vaudeville style skits and broad humor – which was an immediate hit with early television audiences. To his credit, Milton Berle was one of the first TV hosts to recognize and appreciate the talent of a 21 year-old former Memphis truck driver named Elvis Presley.

In today’s colorized photo, Uncle Miltie “conducts” the Duke Ellington Orchestra during an appearance on his show, Texaco Star Theater, on September 20, 1949.

The year is 1905. A pair of ladies enjoy a walk through Lake Park in Milwaukee, Wisconsin more than 100 years ago. Color has a way of taking an ordinary scene from long ago – and transforming it into something special that we can appreciate on a higher level.

The year is 1847. Here’s future First Lady, Mary Todd Lincoln, daughter of a prominent Lexington, Kentucky family. In 1839, Mary moved to Springfield, Illinois, to live with her sister, Elizabeth Porter Edwards. She became popular with the town’s eligible young men, and for a time was courted by Stephen A. Douglas. Of course, we know the suitor she chose. She and Abraham Lincoln were married on November 4, 1842.

The year is 1967. British actress, Madeline Smith’s career began with a job at London boutique, Biba, while in her teens. The shop’s owner, Barbara Hulanicki helped get Madeline into modeling in 1967.

This is one of her early modeling shots. It captures the Mod-Flower Power era as well as any photo I’ve seen.

Of course, black and white is the antithesis of the fashion and art of the period – especially in London. Something had to be done to fix this – so we did something.

The year is 1941. Here’s a Memorial Day photo that really needs no introduction. Let’s just say, it was a “date which will live in infamy”. Today is more than an excuse to light up the barbecue. It’s a time to remember those who gave their lives to preserve our freedom. God rest you, our brave men and women of the armed forces.

The year is 1949. Came across this photo several years ago. The girl with the monkey was 17 years-old at the time, and it’s taken at a beach somewhere in America (My guess is Florida). That’s all I know about this fun image. But, I liked it enough to colorize it for your enjoyment.

The year is 1899. Morris Brown College in Atlanta, Georgia opened its doors in 1885. The school plays a proud part in Black History, producing leaders in coroprate America, sports, and the arts. Over the past decade, the school has gone through its share of trials, and is to be commended for its fighting spirit. Today, we’re looking at just one example of the Morris Brown spirit – their 1899 baseball team.
