The year is 1864. A central Virginia town at the junction of the James and Appommatax Rivers, City Point became a critical Union port and supply hub during the Civil War. It’s also the likely location of this fantastic photo showing three classic locomotives. Color is by yours truly at American Photo Colorizing.com.

The year is 1944. Baseball great, Josh Gibson slides home during the 1944 Negro Leagues All-Star Game at Chicago’s Comiskey Park. Gibson never got to play in the Major Leagues. He passed away in 1947, 3 months shy of Jackie Robinson smashing the color barrier.

MR. ED SAY, “HOWDY WIL-BURRR” (1939)

Welcome to the American Photo Colorizing.com photo blog. Our Gallery features 100s of already colorized HD images available for purchase – or you can send us one of your photos to colorize. A visit to our website can get you started: http://www.americanphotocolorizing.com

The year is 1939. This delivery horse just reminds me a whole lot of Mr. Ed. And of course, for die-hard baby boomers, Mr. Ed was reminiscent of Donald O’Connor’s “Francis The Talking Mule”. There’s a famous quote from King Solomon. He said, “There’s nothing new under the Sun – especially in Hollywood” (or words to that effect).

The photo was taken by Marion Post Wolcott, photojournalist for the Farm Security Administration. It was the winter of 1939/40 in the village of Woodstock, Vermont.

The year is 1945. For Vice President Harry S. Truman, February 10, 1945 probably began like any other day. Breakfast with wife, Bess, have a morning meeting with his boss, FDR. Perhaps at noon he hosted a dignitary or two for lunch. And then it was off to the National Press Club Canteen, where, according to the Truman Presidential Library, he would entertain our servicemen with his piano playing. Fairly routine activities for the president.

Twenty year-old Hollywood actress, Lauren Bacall just happened to be at the canteen, when Harry S. sat down and began to tickle the ivories. Bacall’s press agent, Charlie Enfield, who was also chief of publicity for Warner Brothers, gets a brainstorm. Charlie has Bacall saunter over to the piano, and hoist herself on top. Well, you can see from the photo why she caused a worldwide sensation. Photos of Lauren and Harry enjoying an intimate moment at the piano made front pages around the globe.

Three months later, Harry S. Truman is the new President of the United States, and Lauren Bacall is wed to her love interest in “To Have And Have Not” – actor, Humphrey Bogart.

The year is 1948. If you’re a fan of American kitsch, you’ve got to love this 1948 cardboard display for Vornado fans. The “Space Vixen” is straight out of Startling Comics, which were popular pulp comics of the day. The space age-styled fan was invented by aerospace designer, Ralph Odor. Vornado continues to manufacture fans to this day. The space age-styled girl – unfortunately, remains an icon of the past. Color, of course, is by American Photo Colorizing.com – that’s us!
