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 1949. Came across this photo several years ago. The girl with the monkey was 17 years-old at the time, and it’s taken at a beach somewhere in America (My guess is Florida). That’s all I know about this fun image. But, I liked it enough to colorize it for your enjoyment.

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 1971. American Photo Colorizing offers special reduced prices for family photo colorizing. Most high school yearbook photos were black & white through the 1970s. We’re featuring several yearbook photos this week of my own 1972 graduating class from Duxbury High School in Massachusetts. Here is Susan Marie McCarthy posing in the sand of Duxbury Beach, across the world’s longest wooden bridge from Powder Point Avenue. It’s September 1971.

POWDER POINT BRIDGE – DUXBURY, MASSACHUSETTS

Duxbury is located north of Plymouth, and was the hometown of many of the original pilgrims who came over on the Mayflower, like Myles Standish, John Alden and Priscilla Alden. This photo of Susan was scanned from the yearbook, and only measured about 3″ across. Even at this small size, it provided a fairly clean image for colorizing. Seems like yesterday we posed for these photos – and yet Susan, like many of the girls in our class – is probably a grandmother today.

We’re featuring several such yearbook photos over the coming week – of my own 1972 graduating class from Duxbury High School in Massachusetts. Here, a blonde, 40s-style beauty, Linda Wadell relaxes on a log amid patches of beach grass in September 1971.
