RESTORATION OF A HISTORIC PHOTOGRAPH OF NEW YORK CITY LANDMARK

This 19th century vintage photo of the landmark Dakota building on Central Park West and 72nd Street in New York City predated the arrival of automobiles and shows the Upper West Side at the time when most of it was occupied by small farms and plots of waste land.

Restoration of this photograph started with making of a high resolution 1200 dpi scan. Fading was reduced and chemical stains were eliminated. Finally, after the photograph was restored to like new condition a 16x20 print was made on fine art paper.
