RESTORATION OF A HISTORIC PHOTOGRAPH OF NEW YORK

The view of New York's City Hall was captured on 1885 historic photograph taken on the day of President Ulysses S. Grant funeral. With the building draped in black and the flags lowered, the funeral procession can be seen coming down the steps of the building.

The photograph was scanned at high resolution and the image was digitally restored to bring back the richness of details. After the restoration was completed a print was made using high quality giclée photo paper. It was to be framed and displayed as part of the historic photographic collections of one of New York's most prestigious social clubs.
