APC - BLOG LOGO (540x540)

Welcome to the American Photo photo blog! We colorize black & white photos for museums, educators, media . . . . . and families like yours.

A visit to our website gets you started:

The year is 1910. Here we are in the first week of summer -and to celebrate, we’re at the beach at Waikiki. Yesterday we met the Girls of Summer 1920 – and today, it’s the boys’ turn to soak up the sun. These suntanned fellows are all brothers – including 2nd from the left – the Babe Ruth of Surfing and Olympic Swimming, Duke Kahanamoku! Duke is generally credited with popularizing the Hawaiian sport of surfing in the United States. Yes, long before The Beach Boys and Dick Dale – there was Duke!

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!
