Offering Historic Photographic Reproductions Since 1957

Combining their love of history and photography, Richard & Gini Steele have created an extensive collection of photographic images of times long gone by. Throughout their work with many Historical Societies, Archivists and Researchers, the Steele’s realized that there was a need to restore and reproduce these historical images and make them available again before they are lost forever.

Working from their personal collection of old glass plates, negatives and photographs, the Steele’s restore images by hand, using negative and print retouching techniques. Photographs are then individually hand printed on fiber based, silver emulsion paper. This is the same general technique used at the turn of the century. All photographic work (both restoration and darkroom) is done by traditional methods with no computer involvement. The photographic techniques used are fast becoming a "lost art" with the current trend toward electronic and digital processes.

Photographs are available in Black and White or Sepia. Selected images are also available hand tinted. We also buy old glass negatives, photographs, stereo views etc.
