          There are but a few items that possess the sentimental power of a photograph. Captured moments of our personal history that hold images of those dear and departed cannot be replaced.

          At Mumford Restoration, we have developed an extraordinary level of expertise in the digital restoration of antique photographs, from photos damaged by fire and water to photos that have faded and aged. As passionate as we are about furniture, digital restoration of antique photographs is a close second.  Please note that we ONLY restore antique photos in black and white, nothing modern and nothing in color.

          Until you have felt the sense of loss many of our clients have experienced, believing their entire photo history has been lost to a house fire or a burst water heater–you cannot imagine the joy on their faces when we are able to salvage and restore their family history! Even the old family photo of great-great-grandparents, so faded it can hardly be recognized anymore…bringing that back to life has made our clients burst into tears.  See some of examples of the antique photos we have digitally restored below.
