    Avoid water. You might experiment on an edge or on an unimportant sample with other solvents. But I suspect mechanical separate (thin spatula, patience) might be your only recourse.

        I'd ask at your nearest big historical museum. You'd want someone in person.

            Collecting Vintage Photos
            by CCdesktop
            I want to begin to collect an inventory of photos from different time periods - like WWII, or the depression.

            Does anyone know of or use any collectibles sites that offer photos that are not too expensive?

            I'd appreciate any tips you can offer.

            removing photos from a Harding's Album - 1871
            by Lindberg
            I recently acquired a Harding's Flexible Chain Back Album and it was put together in 1871. I am trying to remove the photos, but when I do, I seem to be ripping the paper. The photos are not glued down, but seem to be stuck. Can anyone help me with this problem.

            by doyt
            I'm new to all this so bear with me if it's been discussed before. I have some shots of old Victorian houses that I have taken from the public right of way. I was thinking of printing up a few, framing them and try to sell them in a local consignment art store.

            The photos have been...
