The year is 1900. What a Courier & Ives moment! This is a backwoods road in Northern New Jersey – the countryside I grew up in more than a half-century later. It’s the tail-end of dirt road-horse & buggy days. This is one of the eras I enjoy colorizing most, the 1890s throuugh 1910s. I like that in many cases, much of what existed at the time remain standing today – but the fashions and modes of transportation have changed.

Don’t know which town this photo was taken in, but I wouldn’t be surprised to find this stretch of road is virtually unchanged. The house and the bridge are probably still there. If any of you Jersey folk come across it on a weekend drive, send us a pic.

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!
