Introducing my collection of enchanced copies of 19th and early 20th century b/w photographs

This is a personal and ongoing collection of digitally enhanced copies of 19th and 20th century black and white photographs. My enhancement of the copies of these aged photographs has cleaned and sharpened their images and restored some to closely resemble their original black and white presentations. Some images I have taken liberty to colorize to offset the dark and dinginess of aged stained copies of originals. My enhancements have created in all of these photographs a surprisingly unique image, that restores the copy of the original photograph, and offers new life to very old and some forgotten pictures. The names and dates of these photographs and photographers are included, if they can be identified.

I hope my visitors will enjoy this eclectic collection of remarkable photography. Most if not all of these photographs are only available in museums or discarded, out of print books or private collections. None of my enhanced photographs are available anywhere but this website.

    it looks fine however, when openіng in IE, it has sоme overlapрinǥ issues.

    I merеly wanted to provide you with a գuick heads up!
    Besides that, excellent blog!

    web will be a lot more useful thɑn ever before.

      Try Capcha plug in or don’t allow anyone to register or comment on your blog. Last year I was getting too much spam and stopped all comments. I get some spam now but not what I was getting. If I start getting too much again I’ll stop all comments.
