Family albums are remarkable documents that sadly seem to dying out due to the social networks. Why keep the images in a book where the rest of the family can’t see them, when you can upload them to Facebook?
Recently i was able to look through a beautifully ornate and fascinating family album, bought to me by a client who wanted to have a number of the images copied and repaired.
It was obvious that the album was old just from looking at it, but after a bit of research i realised that the images dated form well before the first world war. The fascinating detail of what i found out can be read here.
Photographs are very delicate documents. Water, smoke and especially strong light can cause an immense amount of damage to a photograph. Sometimes that damage can be fatal, although it can be surprising how much detail remains even in the most faded photograph.
The photo restoration service extends the lifespan of an original photograph. See the old original photo as being like a negative. The original can be placed safely away, away from the elements that would harm it, and the new one displayed for all to see.
