The year is 1948. We’re back in New York City for another in our series of colorful moments from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. This was actually one of our earliest colorizing efforts, from 2002. Does anyone else notice our peg-legged friend bears a strong resemblance to Bluto/Brutus from the Popeye cartoons? Behind our pirate, is a beautifully elaborate promotion for Ingrid Bergman’s latest film, “Joan Of Arc”. Its 1948 release helped us determine the date of this parade photo. The $50,000 Question people ask us is, “How do you know which colors to use when colorizing a black & white photo?”. Three things: Preference, Experience, and Research . . . a whole lot of Research.
