Does anyone know of a nontoxic way to remove old photographs from the black paper pages of old photo albums?

Carefully remove most of the loose/unstuck black paper from the photo, and then apply minimal amounts of "non-toxic" water -- that should be all that is needed, as glue or paste were probably used.
