About Our Images

We pride ourselves on offering a wide array of images, featuring a range of subjects. Our images are all restored vintage photography, allowing us to bring new life to these historic images.

Vintage Photography

As mentioned, we specialize in restored prints of vintage photography. All of our images are sourced from archives, and are true vintage photographs, rather than being modern photographs staged to look vintage. 

Accepted Age of Images

The youngest photographs in our collection were made in the late 1940s. Many of our images are significantly older than that, dating back to the mid-1800s through the early 1900s. 

Reproduction Prints

While all of our images are vintage, the prints we are making of these images are modern. After the digital restoration process we create museum quality, archival fine art prints on both paper and canvas. This offers the best of both worlds; the appeal and intrigue of vintage photographs, with all the advantages of modern technology and materials to create the best prints possible of these beautiful and unique images.

Advantages over Original Prints

One of the biggest advantages of reproduction prints over original prints is archival quality. We’ve come a long way over the years in improving photographic methods and storage materials. Many original prints of vintage photographs are faded, discolored, or damaged. Creating reproduction prints lets us avoid these issues, ensuring our prints will last a lifetime and beyond. 

Restored to Original Conditions 

With our process, we are able to restore these vintage photographs to their original condition. We can repair the damage digitally, correct any fading or discoloration, and bring new life to these images. 

Size Options Print 

Reproduction prints also have the added benefit of being able to be created in a range of size options. If you were in the market for original prints, you would be confined to whatever size someone happened to print a particular image. With reproduction prints, we are able to offer all of our images in a range of sizes, from small to statement piece. No matter which image you fall in love with, you’ll be able to order a size that fits your space and budget. 

Surface Options 

Are images are available as both paper and canvas productions, giving you the option to choose whatever aesthetic you prefer. Paper prints require framing, and can be framed with moulding in a vintage style to match the vintage photograph if you like. Canvas prints, on the other hand, do not require framing, and are ready to be hung on the wall as is. These can often have a more modern feel, blending vintage with modern in a beautiful print. 

How we Choose our Images

We choose our images based on a number of factors. These include subject matter, file size and quality, and level of restoration required. Ultimately, we are choosing images that will allow us to create the highest quality prints possible, and avoiding images that are deficient in quality in one way or another.
