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 1864. Some of the clearest, crispest photos I’ve located from the Civil War-era were taken in Petersburg, Virginia. They also number among some of my favorite antique photos to colorize. To conform the image into “standard dimensions”, it was necessary to extend the brick building on the left. The centerpiece of this quaint photo is the Petersburg Court House as it appeared 150 years ago.

First, lets see the court house as it stands 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. Your ancestors are counting on you!
