On behalf of my family, I would like to thank you so much for the amazing restoration of the old photograph of my father at age 16. The result is unbelievable! The photograph from 1947 was in such bad condition with rusted staples through it and you have managed to recapture what would have been a lost part of our history. I want to thank you for your sensitivity in doing this at a time, when we were very distressed due to my father’s death. Through your skill both in restoration and in dealing with us at that difficult time with kindness, we now have a family treasure, Your attention to keeping the original tones of the photograph and your advice as to its preservation are much appreciated. We will be using your service again and recommending you to others.

Thank you,

Ms. Boulert
