Damage Etc.,

For those interested in a close up look at the cracks, gouges and dirt , which old photos are subject to, check out the attached photo. If nothing else it tends to convey the idea that old photos are somewhat delicate and should be handled and stored accordingly...all the more reason to make digital copys for display. Tom

That is something easily missed with the naked eye. Thanks for sharing it Tom. Maybe it'll be a wake up call for us.
