It took a lot of tweaking to restore this faded, torn and tattered clipping from an old scrapbook which was also in terrible condition. These old scrapbooks from the early 20th century were basically filled with very dark brown ("foxed") clippings that are torn, faded, and in most cases, ready for the recycle bin. However, when an historic clipping such as the above scan is found within those darkened pages, it behooves those of us who are involved in historical preservationist to try to bring back a semblance of the genuine article....and voila! The above article resurrected from 100 years of scrapbook exile.
