Care and Identification of Family Photographs
Saturday, March 23, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Old family photographs are among the first items people rescue in times of catastrophe, yet many of us do little to ensure their long-term preservation. This three-hour, hands-on workshop will discuss:
*Dating and identifying photos based on process and format
*Finding dating clues within old images
*Ideal storage environment (cold, dry, and dark)
*Archival enclosures and albums
*Properly marking photographs
*Sharing images via online sites
*Preservation of digital photographs
Participants are encouraged to bring mystery or interesting photographs for a brief show-and-tell session.
