Family Photos


In my quest for old family photos, I have found them in various states of disrepair. The photograph above was obtained from a distant relative, our next door neighbor, Virginia. This photo is of her parents wedding in 1921. It is mounted on a piece of convex glass and secured by a press fit frame. With over eighty years having passed since it was framed, age and sunlight has taken its toll causing it to crack. I am very pleased to have been able to restore and add it to my collection as he is the grandson of the gentleman featured in my previous post

Wedding photography sure has changed over the last 100 years!

I like the "virtual frame" you made as well. You gave that old relic of a photo new life.
