Over time photographs fade, rip, crease, or become victims to spills and small insects. Besides making the photograph less appealing to look at, this can obscure the details of the picture that gave us insight into its story.

Fortunately our talented volunteer Damani Jordan was able to digitally restore these photographs to give us a glimpse into what that photo would have looked like at the time it was taken. By doing this restoration digitally it allows us to preserve the original photograph in its current state without potentially harming the photo through chemical or mechanical procedures.
