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.

BLUEBIRDS & COOKIES (1956)

Welcome to the American Photo Colorizing photo blog.

The year is 1956. This is another colorized image from one of our customers, Sheila S. from Pleasant Grove, Utah. You may have seen this one as a promotional ad on our American Photo Colorizing.com home page. The caption reads, “Our world wasn’t black & white” . . . “And neither were Mom’s cookies!”. Readers will be happy to learn the “Bluebird Cookies” were made BY Bluebirds, and not FROM Bluebirds.

BEACH BABIES (1930)

APC - BLOG LOGO (540x540)

Welcome to American Photo Colorizing .com’s photo blog.
The year is 1930. The place: Highland Beach, Maryland. I’m trying to fit in some beach images from the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer, by Labor Day. I love this 1930 photograph. I love the girls in their old-time swim suits. But most of all – I love the . . . no, I absolutely LOVE the awesomely cool convertible that got them there. Ohhh, the cruisin’ I would’ve done as a teenager in this majestic tin can! Mmmm-mmmmmm!!

The year is 1922. This one is “hot off the presses”, as I completed colorizing this wonderful Atlantic City image only a few minutes ago. This photo turned out just I hoped it would – looking like a group of 2014 girls dressed up like the Roaring ’20s. But, no – this is in fact, a group of girls at the Jersey Shore in 1922 – dressed up like the Roaring ’20s.

IT’S SUMMER FUN AS ONLY THE JERSEY SHORE CAN DELIVER IT. FOR YOUR ENTERTAINMENT PLEASURE – HERE’S A PROMO FILM OF SEASIDE HEIGHTS, NJ IN THE 1950s. SEASIDE HEIGHTS IS ABOUT AN HOUR NORTH OF ATLANTIC CITY. IN THE 1960s, MY FAMILY WOULD OFTEN HEAD DOWN THE GARDEN STATE PARKWAY TOWARD SEASIDE HEIGHTS AND ASBURY PARK. ENJOY!

The year is 1934. This scene is part of a dream sequence production number directed by Hollywood legend, Busby Berkeley for the Warner Brothers’ musical, “Fashions Of 1934”. When I laid my eyes on this movie still, I couldn’t resist giving it the full-color treatment. Platinum blonde human harps? Alas, only in Hollywood. A short clip of this musical number is included here for your enjoyment.

The year is 1935. Girls on the beach . . . Brian Wilson spent a lifetime penning and singing songs about them. Now, that we’re celebrating “4th of Julie” week, it’s high time we paid tribute to the summer girls. These ladies are clearly enjoying a day of fun in the sun, in this photograph taken nearly 80 summers ago. And as The Beach Boys often sing, “The girls on the beach – are all within reach”.

The year is 1920. This is the first week of summer -and to commemorate it, here we are at the beach in Southern California. These healthy examples of Roaring ’20s “untamed youth” are some of Mack Sennett’s famous bathing beauties – stars of the silver screen. Fellows, now don’t you go falling for these perky young super-models. They would’ve been about 115 years old today. But over a century ago, these were the Girls of Summer.
