Recovering Wet Photographs

Photographs are a treasured part of a family’s or institution’s collection, and water damage can have a devastating effect on them. The Galveston Historical Foundation produced this short video showing how to recover wet photographs. Preservation Australia presents this ten-minute video about how to salvage photographs from water damaged albums.
