335 photos

We offer all of our images in different sizes, color, black & white, sepia, matt or glossy finish.


Each image can be mounted and framed.


Our original period images are from the Library of Congress, the National Archives or other quality sources. Each image is taken from a high resolution negative and then cleaned of blemishes, damage, scratches, and whatever the decades have caused. Next, the image is carefully brought back to life by adding color to the black and white image by the internationally known color artist and author of "Restoring and Tinting Vintage Images", David Richardson.




We are often asked, "How do we choose our colors?" The simple answer is research! We read historical documents for descriptions of the scene and colors. We work with civil war experts. We look at museum collections. If possible, we visit and photograph the sites where the images were taken. By determining the right colors to use, we are able to make the photographs look as if they were taken yesterday instead of 150 years ago.
