Conserving photos at the Imperial War Museum

As seen on Flickr

Get yer gloves on!

Gloves must be worn when handling photographs as fingerprints can damage the gelatine that forms the surface of the photo.

The team at the Imperial War Museum have been conserving some photographs that will be displayed in the forthcoming Once Upon a Wartime exhibition at IWM London.

Nice touch to share the preparations and build-up through photos on Flickr. Also great to see some conservation in action rather than just the end results.
