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 are the official souvenir book and two t-shirt logos, all featuring our colorizations.
The year is 1916. A photographer captured this action shot of British soldiers going “over the top”, during the Battle of the Somme in northern France. More than a million soldiers were wounded or killed during the battle between July 1st and November 18th.
We’re now in the 2nd year of commemorating the 100th anniversary of the “war to end all wars”. Not only did World War One not put an end to all wars – but, it laid the groundwork for Germany to launch invasions throughout Europe, culminating in an even more destructive second world war. Ironically, the site of the battle, the River Somme got its name from a Celtic word meaning “tranquility”.

The year is 1916. We’re right in the trenches as British soldiers go “up and over” during the Battle of the Somme in World War I. The battle, fought by British and French forces against Germany along the River Somme in northern France, was one of the largest and bloodiest engagements of the “war to end all wars”. Ironically, the Celtic word, “Somme” means “tranquility”. Colorizing this nearly 100 year-old photo brings us up close to the action. It’s as if we are eye-witnesses to history.

The year is 1864. Union troops . . . or perhaps they’re Rebs (who can tell?) are seen take a break from the battle, just long enough to “go commando” in the North Anna River of Virginia.
