The year is 1864 – REALLY! A beautiful girl posed for this haunting photo at the age of 16 . . . in 1864. Her name was Ellen Terry, and she became Britain’s top Shakespearean actress, performing on both sides of ‘the pond’. Ellen’s theatrical career spanned 7 decades – into the 1920s. But, here we find her frozen in time at 16 years old – during the American Civil War era. This is an excellent example of how color can bring a 150 year-old scene into the present.

In May 2015, just a few short months ago, we were commissioned to colorize a small collection of Civil War-era etchings and photos for Washington, DC’s “Grand Review Parade of 2015”. You can find a full presentation of the Grand Review on our website’s “Welcome” page: http://www.americanphotocolorizing.com

The parade was broadcast on C-Span – and our colorized Civil War images were used for all Grand Review promotion and souvenir items.
Here’s the official souvenir book with one of our colorized photos featured on the cover.

The year is 1948. If you’re a fan of American kitsch, you’ve got to love this 1948 cardboard display for Vornado fans. The “Space Vixen” is straight out of Startling Comics, which were popular pulp comics of the day. The space age-styled fan was invented by aerospace designer, Ralph Odor. Vornado continues to manufacture fans to this day. The space age-styled girl – unfortunately, remains an icon of the past. Color, of course, is by American Photo Colorizing.com – that’s us!

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 1967. British actress, Madeline Smith’s career began with a job at London boutique, Biba, while in her teens. The shop’s owner, Barbara Hulanicki helped get Madeline into modeling in 1967.

This is one of her early modeling shots. It captures the Mod-Flower Power era as well as any photo I’ve seen.

Of course, black and white is the antithesis of the fashion and art of the period – especially in London. Something had to be done to fix this – so we did something.

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 . . . and so are your 1960s Flower Children!
