Re: [BKARTS] Old Photos / Old Photo Albums



Hi Susan,
that black paper is very weak when damp or wet while usually old photographs are impervious to water. You would have to test it, of course, but I would start with one of the least valuable photos and see if dampening the paper would allow it to be removed from the paper. Of course this destroys the black paper.

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