Today, more than ever, people are researching their roots and discovering details about their past. Names and dates are merely the framework of a family's history. Stories and photographs give it character, sentimental value, and historic importance.
When you collect old photos, you are doing your part to maintain a family history. You understand the value and importance of passing down family photo collections through generations.
Unfortunately, most people are unaware of the true danger their photo collection is in. Although a photograph may survive decades after the person is gone, it is vulnerable to its surroundings. Many factors are contributing to the deterioration of your photos, including heat, humidity, sunlight, aging, and rodents. Regardless of the storage conditions, your collection of photographs will inevitably succumb to its environment.
