CRACKED and FADED

This 80+ year old photograph had been stored in a frame that was not acid-free, and had been subjected to extreme changes in temperature and humidity over a number of decades. After scanning the image and carefully restoring the damaged areas, the new image was printed on archival paper and toned in sepia to replicate the original image as closely as possible.
