The year is 1941 – but teenage nature hasn’t really changed all that much in 72 years. There’s still the usually distractions to help one concentrate on their homework. Back in ’41, studying American History and Practical Math included a little boost from the Glenn Miller Orchestra, the Andrews Sisters, and of course . . . Frankie.

But the days of carefree youth were about to collide with Infamy. Pearl Harbor loomed just three months away.

The year is 1941. Here’s a Memorial Day photo that really needs no introduction. Let’s just say, it was a “date which will live in infamy”. Today is more than an excuse to light up the barbecue. It’s a time to remember those who gave their lives to preserve our freedom. God rest you, our brave men and women of the armed forces.

At American Photo Colorizing, 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 to “Go Color” with your vintage and antique family photos. Your ancestors are counting on you!

The year is 1941. I can’t look at a photo of the New Yor City docks without being reminded of the Dead End Kids aka The Eastside Kids aka The Bowery Boys of B-Movie fame. When they’d be on the run from the cop on the beat – usually for stealing apples – the city docks would be their hangout.

Most of our colorized images are sized to conform to certain dimensions for easy framing. To accomplish this task, I added extra sky to the image prior to colorizing. This also creates a scene that is more evenly centered. I chose the colors for this colorization, based on the general appearance of New York highrises of the period, and on color tones that were typical for early 1940s color film. All that’s missing are the sounds of ship horns and tugboat whistles – and perhaps Leo Gorcey yelling, “Chickie, the cops!”.
