  • Glass Plate Negatives

    We've bought an old house and found some glass plate negatives in the attic. Unfortunately the ones that have an image on them are stuck together. Two plates stuck together and we have a few of these.

    Is there a way to get these unstuck without breaking the glass or ruining the image?

    Thanks, Pam

    The first question is do you think that they are of any historical significance? Of course the answer will depend on just who you ask, to any remaining family of course they would be, or could they document the history of some town or state or whatever.

    Before I would do anything to them, In would spend some time trying to find a university or museum or some such place that more than likely would have someone who is experienced in solving problems of this kind. My experience is that sometimes they will do the work if you give them copies of the content.

    Good luck and let us know how it turns out!
