The year is 1924. Cruising the streets of Washington, DC, this pretty flapper of the Roaring ’20s is sure to stop traffic behind the wheel of her sporty pedal car. Beep-Beep, Beep-Beep, YEAH!

The year is 1920. Here is the Ford Mansion in Morristown, New Jersey. The mansion was constructed between 1772 and 1774 for Jacob and Theodosia Ford. During the winter of 1779-80, General George Washington used the mansion as his headquarters, with 10,000 colonial troops encamped at nearby Jockey Hollow.

This photo was a snap for me to colorize, as the mansion and its grounds have changed very little since this 1920 photograph was taken. I was able to match colors with modern color photographs. I grew up in the Morristown area, and visited the Ford Mansion and Jockey Hollow, where the army was encamped during the harsh Winter of 1777.

As a youngster, it was easy to see why General Washington chose the Ford mansion to base his daily operations from. It was across the street from an excellent Chinese restaurant, the Tea House of the August Moon – and around the corner from Dominick’s pizza. Kids know what’s important.

Now onto our “Before & After” photos for today.

The year is 1922 (give or take). Does this look like fun or what? In the words of the King of Kitsch, Charles Phoenix, “I Knoooooowww!!” It’s 1922 and these girls are daytrippin’. Can you imagine the gas mileage? Here is yet another black & white image that benefits greatly from the addition of color. It brings a new perspective to history that we’ve never really considered before now. Thanks to digital technology and American Photo Colorizing’s dedication to full-color realism – you can now experience history the way it REALLY looked. Remember, YOUR world isn’t Black & White . . . Neither was THEIRS.

The year is 1925. One of my favorite snow scenes, here some Senate pages have a wild snowball fight across from the Capitol dome. I chose to bathe the image in the digital equivalent of a blue wash, to help capture the wintery mood. Well, it has me so convinced, I think it’s time burn a few logs in the fireplace.

The year is 1927. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is in full-swing, as it was just a few days ago. In recent years, the parade balloons have gone corporate – with the mascots of Big Business. When many of us were kids, Saturday morning cartoon characters were the rage. But, here in the Roaring ’20s – most of the balloons featured characters that were unique to the parade – much like California’s Tournament of Roses Parade. At American Photo Colorizing, a parade just isn’t the same in black & white. So, we’ve given it our special colorizing touch – and Big Fish (no relation to Big Bird) looks much friendlier in full-color. Remember…OUR world isn’t black & white…neither was Big Fish’s”.
