photo care class

This is an example of an early color photograph in the Elkhart County Historical Museum collection that has been subject to fading due to the unstable dye process used in color photography at that time. The process was also not in common use before the mid-1940s meaning the date of 1935-36 that had been applied by the original donor was probably off by several years.

BRISTOL — The Elkhart County Historical Museum will be presenting a virtual class on caring for photographs, the first in a series of three.

“Photograph Care Class 1: Identification and Dating” will be offered on two occasions, at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 14, and 1 p.m. Friday, Jan. 15.
