The repair work of the photo itself was actually very simple with this restoration. The damage was mainly in sold areas with no detail. The tricky part was the border. We felt it important to save the photo and the matte and if this had been created in the computer age, this would have been a simple task. The patterns would have been exact mirror images from one side to the other. But these were done by hand and there were no exact matches. Thus getting the lines to fit and look right took quite a bit of work. The cost for this project if it were the photo alone would have been about $40.00, but the border ran another $45.00.
