Hi all, my name is Scott. I have a picture that was taken in 1959 that was framed behind glass, it got wet and now a portio of the photo is stuck to the glass. Is there a way to remove it from the glass without damage to the photo???

Re: problem

Do a search on that problem. The question has been asked and answered many many times.

Re: problem

I would not suggest doing anything until you have first made a copy, either scanned or re-photographed. Trying to remove the image may further damage the emulsion.
