APC - BLOG LOGO (540x540)

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 1925. Judging by our blog stats, you all are red-hot and ready for more of America’s King of the Insect Kingdom, Dr. Frank E. Lutz, of the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.

This is the year Dr. Lutz initiated the world’s first Insect Museum Camp and Marked Nature Trail, in Tuxedo, New York back in 1925. In today’s photo, Dr. Lutz is at the nature trail, relaxing on a log bridge built by members of the Boy Scouts of America.

1925 -  Dr. Frank Lutz On Bridge

Our thanks for use of this photo goes out to Daniel and Kate W, of Brentwood, Tennessee (we always abbreviate last names to protect the innocent). Daniel is Dr. Lutz’s great-grandson, and Kate is Daniel’s new bride. We’ve provided the sepiatone effect, pulling a full-reversal on what we normally do with a photo.

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. Your ancestors are counting on you!

Here are Daniel & Kate
