The year is 1860. This week, American Photo Colorizing.com blog is featuring daguerreotype photos of Black Slaves during the American Civil War. This is an actual southern cotton plantation 154 years ago. The gentleman in the foreground seems to be monitoring the work progress of the women sitting in what may appear to some to be a pile of snow – or to others, a giant mound of cocaine. It is in fact – a big dollar crop of the Confederacy – King Cotton.

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!
