It’s “Throw It Back Thursday” here at the American Photo Colorizing Blog. Last year about this time, we gave you an added extra – and I thought it would be cool to revisit this special blog post. Along with our usual Before & After Colorized Photo – we have a video of a special person. He’s the kind of guy who just seems to spread a whole lot of joy wherever he goes.

His name is Jonathan, and he’s a singing bell ringer for the Salvation Army. We found Jonathan set up in front of the Vons Supermarket at Victoria and Telegraph in Ventura, California. From across the parking lot drifted this wonderful pop Christmas singing. Turned out, it came from Jonathan, a 25 year-old fellow from Santa Paula. We loved his renditions so much, we wanted to share them with you. If you live anywhere in the Ventura County area, come let Jonathan entertain you, and drop something in his kettle to help the less fortunate. Now, here’s Jonathan The Singing Bell Ringer. Cheers!

And now, for the photo colorizing fans among you – which seems to be just about everybody – here are some color corrected & colorized 1960s slides of Plymouth Massachusetts. Plymouth was home to a group of Christian Separatists from England, known as the Pilgrims – and the Wampanoags, who, under Chief Massasoit, befriended them, ensuring their survival in the New World. The original homes of such notable Pilgrims as Miles Standish, William Brewster, John Alden & Priscilla Mullins Alden still stand today, across Plymouth Harbor, in the village of Duxbury – as does the home of guitarist Joe Perry of Aerosmith, though to the best of my knowledge he wasn’t a Pilgrim. Duxbury was also home to yours truly, for three of my “wonder years”. Southern Massachusetts is brimming with early-American History . . . and features some of the best beaches on the East Coast – including Cape Cod. I do recommend you wait until summer to go water skiing.

Christmas will sneak up on you before you know it. It isn’t too early to start looking through your family photo collection. A beautifully-colorized image of your ancestors (suitable for enlarging and framing) makes a wonderful keepsake for the entire family. This year, “Give the Christmas Present of Christmas Past!”
