I wanted to share this photo of Robert Robinson with the community. Location: San Quentin, Marin, California, United States. Date: 9 Jul 1921.

Ray Robinson, a musician and burglar from Joplin, Missouri, is pictured here in his 1921 mugshot from San Quentin State Prison. At this time, Robinson had been convicted of burglary (1st degree). I colouized the photograph myself, using the descriptions from other correctional records (which describe him with blue eyes, auburn hair, and fair to ruddy skin)

Well done, Gillian. I have about 50 photos that need retouching. Is business open? smiley

Really, you’ve a nice job making Robert look like his description, though purists may disagree. Wish I still had that much hair.

I totally agree that the original tends to be best - colourizing is more of an "artistic interpretation" of the past! Thank you for the comment! :)
The colorized version may work well as cousin bait
