This is a fantastic, irreplaceable, turn of
the 20th century photograph, printed on to a fairly thick board,
with a bad crack all the way across. This detail shows the crack
repaired, and the photo returned from brown and white to black and
white. If only all building restoration work could be achieved in
this way! Incidentally, the house in this image, Dunsmuir House,
formerly in Corstorphine, no longer exists, so repairing the image
is very important from an archival and historical perspective.
