The year is 1890. According to the Just A Car Guy blog, this photo was taken in Mexico. Perhaps a train enthusiast can confirm this. If it is Mexico, I’m thinking maybe this is Oaxaco, which has similar terrain. That might make this a Mexico Southern locomotive. So far, it’s a mystery, but this is a very thrilling image – and even more so in color. This kind of image is what comes to mind whenever I hear the classic Johnny Burnette song, “the train kept a-rollin’ all night long – with a heave and a ho . . .”

Welcome to American Photo Colorizing .com’s photo blog!
The year is 1890 – and will you just look at the size of this California Redwood in the forests of Del Norte County. These are a couple of brave (or crazy) men. And it just occurred to me . . . if the Redwood is this huge – how big are the termites?

The year is 1890. Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt’s exploits were as thrilling as the legends attributed to him. He organized the Rough Riders during the Spanish-American War. He was the cowboy of the Dakotas – who became Governor of New York, and President of the United States. He “spoke softly and carried a big stick”. Theodore Roosevelt was a larger than life American icon who will forever be remembered as a real “Teddy Bear”. And a big part of his “larger than life-ness” was that he lived life in Full-Color. Now, a figure as bold and colorful as Teddy deserves to be remembered in color. Makes sense, right? As Teddy himself would say, “Bully!”.

That’s why American Photo Colorizing was founded, established, institutionalized . . . 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 for you to “Go Color” with your antique family photos. Remember . . . your ancestors are counting on YOU!

* Just in case there are one or two of you who weren’t aware of this – the Teddy Bear was named for Teddy Roosevelt.

The year is 1890. Here’s a visually powerful illustration of our moto, “YOUR world isn’t black & white . . . Neither was THEIRS”. The original photo of a team of men logging near Seney, Michigan was taken only 25 years after the end of the Civil War. Adding color to the image erases the gap of nearly 125 years from 1890 to the present day. No longer are they seen as ghosts of a bygone era – but, as real people, whose lives we can relate to. This is our objective at American Photo Colorizing.com – to connect our modern generation with those who have come before. We can do the same for your museum or family photos. There’s no time like the present to bring back the past in color. Remember, your ancestors are counting on you!

The year is 1890. We’re gearing up for Tending History’s Adventures in Halloweenland & Other Spooky Stuff, with a spooky Gay ’90s photo of a bicyclist who has been rattling around just a little too long. You’ve gotta give kudos to the warped 19th century mind that thought this shot up. The top hat offers a touch of class – but, apparently, pants were optional. A bit o’ color by American Photo Colorizing almost makes this creaky ol’ boy spring to life. Boo!
