Did the colorists in Tamotsu Enami’s studio get the colors right in this picture ? See the interesting and informative answer given by flickr member "basic country bumpkin" at this comment below : www.flickr.com/photos/24443965@N08/3297978149/#comment721…

Now long gone, you used to be able to "ride the rails" in Old Bermuda from 1931 to 1948.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bermuda_Railway

"…….It is not easy to get a picture of the wide range of people connected to the railway, from the workers who built it, to the distant British capitalists who financed it, to the managers who ran it, it to the drivers and conductors actually operated the trains….." www.bermudarailway.net/then/people/people.html

If the above is true, I hope this image is historic interest to fans of the old Bermuda Railway. Hit the ALL SIZES button for a nice look at a one of the mechanics (or Engineers), and what looks like a uniformed conductor with gear bag. Not to mention it’s a great close view of two types of early cars… including the "1st" on on the line !

Living in Okinawa, Japan over the years, I sure missed having a Railroad. Okinawa had an extensive rail network that handled over 3,000,000 riders a year. It was destroyed during the Battle of Okinawa in 1945, and never rebuilt. To this day, Okinawa remains the only Prefecture in Japan without a Rail Road system.

From a ca1931-36 series of amateur glass lantern-slides taken by an America tourist on a trip around the world. The photos were developed, printed on glass, and hand colored by the T. ENAMI STUDIO in YOKOHAMA, JAPAN.

This World-Traveling tourist, like many others on the Cruise Ship, saved their undeveloped pictures of the countries they visited until reaching Japan. At this time, Japan still had one of the best reputations for high-quality processing and coloring of the work of tourists passing through, and it was also convenient to get everything done VERY CHEAPLY and put in order before reaching North America and Home.

Although the studio’s founder, T. ENAMI had died in early 1929, his son TAMOTSU continued to sell the images his father had taken from 1892 until his death, as well as processing and coloring the work of tourists from around the world. The studio came to an end when it was fire-bombed in WW2.

Those Guys

When my good buddy and business partner Reagan Williamson and I do projects together it’s either as Those Guys or TG&O, Those Guys & Others. The latter is used when we utilize our network of amazingly talented Go2 Guys like, James Lewis, Tim Foley, Patrick Gill, Scott Ensley, Erik Arradondo, Marcus Romero, Michelle Garcia, Christopher Pawlik, Carlos Zapata, Parish Ticer, Amelia Cruz, Warren Borror, Chris Sykes, Todd Morey, Brian Parrish or Mike MacKenzie, to name a just a few… These guys, both impassioned and dedicated to their work, make every project they’re involved with even better, period. I’m lucky to know them and to be able to count on all of them when ever I need some expert help. Thanks guys. Dang it, I know I’m forgetting a few…
