Jenni, the local family history librarian, gave a very enlightening talk on Preservation and Storage of Photographs. How many of us are guilty of using magnetic photo albums or using sticky tape to repair a torn photo? She showed photos that were damaged, faded or had mould on them and ways to stop them deteriorating further.
Jenni suggested several cheep but safe ways to store our photos, using acid free tissue paper and oven bags! If they are safe enough to cook a chicken in, they are safe for photos and documents. If you used the magnetic photo albums and the photos are really stuck, use fishing line or dental floss to gently lift the photo of the page. Jenni is at the Bankstown Library and Knowledge Centre and she runs different lectures. Give the library a ring or look on their website to see what is on.
