With regards the acid free paper and upvc sleeves, most good art stores will stock them. Failing that amazon.

Here's this weeks blog post.

An interesting topic I'd be more than happy to see some thoughts on. The developments in photo technology and the ability to store hundreds of photos digitally is without doubt a big step forward. However, is the reallity that in the near future we won't see many physical photos?

If that's the case then I think the past and the way we kept and showed off our photos was the better era.

Here's a useful post about scanning photos. Specifically it deals with photos that are larger than your scanner and how it can be a relatively straightforward task to resolve.

Default The oldest photo we've restored

This weeks blog displays a before and after example of the oldest photo we've restored.

Taken in the 1860's the man in the photo would have been living right in the middle of Queen Victoria's reign and twenty years before Jack the Ripper struck.

As we enter Autumn and the dark nights fall in some might be interested to know that this year marks the 125th anniversary of the Jack the Ripper murders. His reign of terror ran from late August 1888 to early November 1888 and included the double murder on the evening of September 30th.

Our latest blog looks at the man tasked with catching the ripper and has a couple of old photos from that era.
