My family has recently embarked on an ancestry mapping and photo restoration project. As we look through the photos of loved ones who've long since past I am very grateful in my heart that even back when photography was much less accessible- people valued photography. When I look at these images with a photographers eye- I see that these were made by real craftsmen. Aren't they amazing???
Some of these images are getting to be 80 or more years old... and they are still precious to our memories..
