RESTORATION OF A MILDEW STAINED PHOTOGRAPH

This striking early 20th century portrait of a Jewish spiritual leader from Eastern Europe was one of many that were brought to us by those who strive to preserve and protect Jewish heritage.

The original photograph was heavily stained by chemicals and mildew and exhibited many marks and scratches from age and mishandling. After producing a high resolution scan, the photograph was digitally retouched and restored to its original appearance including the tone of the blue clay photo paper popular in late 19th, early 20th century.
