Old is Good

One of my interests is photo restoration.  A friend gave me this photo to restore.  It was taken in the early 1940's and kept as a 4.5 black and white positive image sealed between two thin sheets of glass.  I had a fair amount of speck and dust removal to do but I am so impressed of the sharpness of this analog image!  The original actual photo measured only about 1.25 x 1 inch in this oval frame. I scanned it to create an 11x14 image as seen here.  The detail is unreal. I love digital, but this something to think about!  Jeff

  1. What fun! I have some tintypes from my great grandparents (circa 1890s-1910) that I may take another look at now.
