Art - Plastic Manger

The year is 1936. The Cotton Club was the night spot in New York City’s Harlem, owned by gangster, Owney Madden, which eventually moved to the Broadway Theatre district. Though, a restricted club (whites only) – the Cotton Club presented the greatest black entertainers of the 1920s and 1930s, like Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Lena Horne, Cab Calloway, The Nicholas Brothers, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, and Nat King Cole. Prominent in the photo are some of New York City’s ever-present Yellow Cabs.

As you can see from the black and white photo, not only did I colorize the image – but, I transformed the scene into Christmastime in the City. As a rule, I don’t doctor photos beyond colorizing them, however, this scene just called out for snow. There’s no better time to present the Cotton Club in a snowstorm – than at Christmastime. Merry Christmas to all from American Photo!
